Well, when you apply for credit, and list an address, that address can/may be reported.  Having an incorrect address doesn't really mean or do anything to affect your credit, and it holds no weight in your score.  If you haven't applied for any credit recently, then that could be why, or if your older lender/cards have your old address on file still, they may be still reporting that address.  Same goes for employer.

If you call the Credit Bureaus on the phone, they'll probably just let you change the address over the phone, but may want something in writing/proof of new address.
