BK has finally dropped off

My BK from January 2003 has finally been removed from my CR's.  The only bad thing is I haven't seen an increase in my scores. Maybe the CR'S are more interested in the final three baddies coming off in 2013.  At least I'm hoping thats the case and my scores don't drop due to my AAoA's will be shorter.  Any thought's from anyone?

Re: BK has finally dropped off

Does your score not going up have something to do with being rebucketed? Congrats, I am sure you feel great!

Re: BK has finally dropped off

Thank you.  I never gave rebucketting a thought but I can see how that would make sense.  I have the last few baddies coming off soon and will probably get reclassified again to those with no derogs but a short AAOA problem.

Re: BK has finally dropped off

Rember the effect of baddies declines with time.  The score not changing may just mean it was already aged out of score impact.

Re: BK has finally dropped off

+1 I believe that to be true. My report now says I have no public records as a positive to my score even though the BK is still on there. It is soooooo old! Very happy about that.

I see that on my FAKO from USAA but not on my FICO scores.

Re: BK has finally dropped off

It is also on my Fico score watch report. It says I have no recent public records as a plus to my score, which is 703.

Re: BK has finally dropped off

Moving_Forward, how long did it take FICO to do that, did you notice?

 

On the Experian FAKO through USAA they use two years as the cutoff for public filings, according to the comments.  I don't believe FICO is that short.
