AUTHORIZED USER QUESTION: Help Please

Hello All, my mother added to as an Authorized user on her Chase and Bank of America personal credit cards, I am her oldest child and will be taking over some of her finances. Will these credit cards report on my credit report? We reside at the same address but I didn't have to provide my social security number, only name, dob, and address. Also, will it be calculated in my scoring? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Yes, on both counts.
