Yes. We report monthly to all 3 major credit bureaus; Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.
Equifax (800) 685-1111 www.equifax.com

A charge-off is an amount of the loan that is written off the books of record, and so deemed uncollectable by accounting standards of a finance company. The debt is still legally valid and remains as such. SAFCO has the right to legally collect on the full amount that was charged-off.
The best thing to do is to pay the balance of your charged-off debt in full. Once paid, your credit report will show “paid in full, was charged-off.” The charge-off will not be removed from your credit report, but it will show you are making an effort to resolve the negative account information.
If you are unable to pay the debt in full, create a budget to find available money to pay down the debt quicker.
SAFCO recommends consulting one of the three major credit-reporting agencies that we report to each month for additional assistance on how a charge-off account may affect your credit specifically. SAFCO reports account information on a monthly basis to Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.
Account information, both positive and negative, may display on your credit report for up to seven to ten years. SAFCO recommends consulting one of the three credit reporting agencies that we report to each month for additional assistance on how long your account information may reflect and affect your credit specifically.

The form may assist SAFCO, and any other company, with all the necessary information to investigate the claim.
