Question for You All

Question for you all who may be more up to date on this stuff. How long does out of date personal information stay on your credit report?

When I pulled my report last week I noticed it had mailing addresses for me that had to be a good 10 years plus old. I can't even remember the last time I used my parents old home address for any type of a bill. I left home during college and never went back. No one in my family has lived at that address for close to 10 years if not more. I'd like to get rid of the old outdated information ASAP.

I think I'll pull the second report next week and see what that one says.

Was the current address correct? You can update the current mailing address. The historical stuff stays forever I think. It might be a good thing as a friend had to give them previous addresses to prove who he was when his identity was stolen. I don't know that I could do that for 10 years off the top of my head.
