Cr Rpt - worth changing?

I pulled my cr rpt from Experian today and noticed that my birth date is off a yr. Is it worth disputing to get it changed? I think it's right at the other 2 agencies.

Yes, I would change it. You should just have to fill out an online form and they'll take care of it. Shouldn't be too time consuming.

I just got off the phone with TransUnion to dispute an erroneous item on my credit report. While I couldn't complete the change on line for some reason, it only took about a minute to resolve it with the rep on the phone. So, it's not too tough to deal with.

Yes, change it. The error may compound itself.

Then again, if you're never going to apply for credit again it probably doesn't matter.
