When baddies drop off

Didn't get a nibble in Credit Cards. I'll try it here:
I have 4 Baddies showing in credit reports. They were the 4 credit cards included in my bakruptcy 5+ years ago. Will my FICO scores improve when these drop off the 3 major CRA's records?
1-14-08....... TU=683, EQ=667, EX=666
7-04-08....... TU=688, EQ=678, EX=682.......
.......4 of my 5 cards and a new car later.
2/13/09 and forever EX 693

Re: When baddies drop off

I have 4 IIB accounts falling  off in March so will have a more definite answer then.  But when one account that was included in my chapter 13 was deleted, my fico went up 2 points.

Re: When baddies drop off

By the time they are due to expire they have pretty much lost their affect on the credit scoring.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
