Request to Remove Credit Freeze basics

If you were the victim of identity theft, or maybe you were taking protective measures to avoid identity theft, you might have put a credit freeze or security freeze on your credit report. If you are now thinking about taking out a loan or getting a new credit card, you might be considering "unfreezing" your credit report or removing your credit freeze so that creditors can access your file. If you are not sure what credit bureaus you originally contacted, you might have to unfreeze with all three. The Request to Remove a Credit Freeze generates letters to satisfy each of them.


Use the Request to Remove Credit Freeze document if:

  • You need to allow creditors or another third party access to your credit report
  • You want to unfreeze your credit report temporarily or permanently
  • You want to remove a credit freeze with any of the three credit bureaus

A Request to Remove a Credit Freeze will "thaw" any freezes that are currently on file with each of the credit bureaus and makes your credit report available to creditors and other third parties who might request it. Timelines and procedures for lifting a security freeze vary from one credit bureau to another, but they generally take about three business days from when your request is received. You will need your PIN that was provided when freezing your credit, so you can access your report and unfreeze when needed.
