Challenging credit-report errors just got easier, thanks to technology.

The credit reporting bureaus that maintain credit reports now offer consumers the ability to upload documents to support their case when challenging inaccuracies online, the New York Times reports.

“Now that you can upload documents, it allows for a more robust dispute online.”

If you need help with credit — from scores to cards to debt — you’re in the right place.
