I think ARE is the correct verb, this explanation works in this case:

Use a plural verb with two or more subjects when they are connected by and.

Example: A car and a bike are my means of transportation.


I disagree with ab2 - I think this is one of those situations when it can be either, depending on how you parse the sentence.

Your details could either be (1) two separate objects, or (2) a compound object:

  1. My [current address] and [telephone number] are:
  2. My [current address and telephone number] is:
  • 4
    I hate to disagree with an animal lover, but the compound object doesn't work well this case, unless they are bundled in the term "my contact information" is....."
