Why would an employer I haven't worked for in 13 years, show up on my credit report 17 years later?

Due to tightened national security, I've heard of this happening to people who had military backgrounds.  If that's not the reason in your case; it can also  be used as an additional identification tool. For example, a potential employer could match the employers you list in a job application to those listed in your credit report, helping them verify your identity and the information in your job application.
