Others have found success of AU's reporting without SSN as well. Usually it works only if the person is listed with the same address. It is harder to get it to report, but it is definitely doable nonetheless.

I added my sister to my cards as an AU, but we can't see any of those accounts show up on her Credit Karma account. I also became an AU on a few of my brothers cards, and those don't show up on my account either. How can I see if they are reporting on my accounts?

How long ago did you add her and how long ago were you added? Also, did they ask for SSN? If not, are you guys living at the same address? It takes a month or two for new accounts to show up on credit reports.

About a month ago for both of us. Yeah, we have the same address, but they didnt ask for any SSN.

Okay. Some people have found success of getting AU's to report as long as the address matches. Others have not. It's kind of a hit-or-miss. What bank issues the card(s) that you guys were added on?
