Yes you can. Just takes some time.

Contact your current lenders and inform them of your newly assigned SSN. They should begin to report your credit under your new number. You may need to mail a copy to them, But most should be able to update by phone. 

Type a letter to the credit bureaus, explaining that you have a new SSN. Keep the letter simple and to the point. List all previous numbers you had credit under and any previous names you may have used.  Ask that the account be reported under your new number.

Print 4 copies of the letter. one each for each of the 3 credit bureaus and one for your records. Be sure to sign and date the 3 being sent to the credit bureaus. Include a photo copy of your new card and of the old number.

Address envelopes to each credit union and mail.

It should take 30 to 60 days for all the info to be updated.  Pull a copy of your credit report in 3 or 4 months to verify that the info has been updated.  Contact the lender again on any account that is not updated.  Check your report again in 6 to 8 months.

Good luck
