Not Forwarding Mail After Moving
Moving can be a huge hassle, so it should be expected you’ll forget to do a few things. Just don’t let one of those things be forgetting to file a change of address with the post office. Forgetting to do so can result in a suffering credit score because you could miss notifications from your credit card companies and other lenders. If you miss a payment because the monthly statement was late reaching you at your new address, know that some credit card companies report accounts with as little as 30 days late on them, according to U.S. News & World Report.
