Ch13 BK Finally Gone!

After disappearing from my EQ and EX CR's over the previous 2 - 3 months, my Ch13 BK aged off my TU CR about two weeks ago.  In March when the BK was still present, my FICO scores were:  EQ 692, TU 711, EX ?.  This morning they are:  EQ 716, TU 785, EX ?.  I'm not sure why the TU score jump was so significant, but hey, I'll take it.  Note that there is still a chargeoff weighing down the EQ FICO.  With the record of the BK finally gone, a huge weight has been lifted, and I just wanted to share my experience with this stage of the BK aging process.  :smileyvery-happy:


Starting Score: EQ 683, TU 617, EX ?
Current Score: EQ 716, TU 785, EX ?
Goal Score: 750+

Re: Ch13 BK Finally Gone!

Very nice - congrats on your rebuilding.

 

I think the TU is pretty much in line with what can be expected if you've been building your credit post BK.  And I would guess that your EQ will be in the same neighborhood when the chargeoff is no longer weighing it down.

 

Thanks for sharing - what a super feeling that must be!  Congrats again!

You made it!!  What a hurdle you've accomplished and certainly not an easy one!  Your hard work and persistence has a happy ending.  My congrats to you. 

 

I look forward to sending the same email to this forum at some point.

Congrats OP!!  Your pre BK fall off scores are almost identical to my current scores.  I also have one negative BK account on EQ and EX as well.  I hope I get a similiar jump when my BK falls off!!!

How many years after discharge did this occur?

I am sitting at 6 years and 8 months since Chapter 13 discharge and am looking forward to it being gone.
