February 24, 2022 — Letter

The undersigned organizations write on behalf of a coalition of LGBTQ+, consumer, and legal advocacy groups that have come together to address the serious credit-related problems encountered by transgender and nonbinary people. We appreciate that CDIA acknowledged these issues in its press release addressing how transgender and nonbinary individuals can prevent disruptions to their credit after a legal name change. The language in both the CDIA statement and the corresponding policies of all three credit bureaus are an encouraging start.

That said, there is still more work to do and we are hopeful that we can continue working together to address the many pressing credit reporting needs that still remain for transgender and nonbinary consumers.
