When you begin reporting your new SSN to creditors, the credit history you’ve built with your ITIN can be linked to the credit history you begin to build with your SSN. Because the credit bureaus are relying on other unique identifiers — like your name and address — to compile your credit report, they will be able to link your credit profiles. However, it may also be helpful to reach out to the three credit bureaus — Equifax, Experian, and Transunion — and let them know about this update.
