Update: Call centre opening times
Published : 9th July 2020
Equifax remains open for business and we are here to provide support and deal with any queries you may have. However, due to Covid-19 (the Coronavirus), our ability to respond to incoming calls in a timely manner has been impacted by call centre site closures as a result of a government mandated lockdown.
We now have a small number of customer service agents available to help you. If you need to contact us urgently because you can’t access your Equifax service, we are now open between 8am – 6pm, Monday to Friday.
We encourage you to use our Equifax Online Help service to answer any queries you may have. We thank you for your patience.
