Closed CareCredit account by Credit Grantor

Hey guys,

 

Quick question: Today in the mail I got a letter that my dads CareCredit/GEMB (GE MONEY BANK) account has been inactive for more then 36 months and they hace closed the account due to prolonged inactivity. It says that the credit report will indicated closed by Credit Grantor for this account. I am the authorized user on the account and it does report on my credit history. 

 

We dont really care that they closed this card since we never use it, my only question is how will it effect, if it will at all, anything on my credit history by it saying that it was closed by credit grantor for this account?

 

This will not hurt my utilization as i dont have any balances on my other cards. Just worry about it saying that it was closed by credit granton im not sure how that will look on my history.

 

Will this stay on my credit history for another 10 years untill it comes off?

 

Thanks for all your answers in advanced.

The notation of "closed by credit grantor" on any account on your reports in and of itself does not have any impact on your FICO scores. In general, closed accounts in good standing will continue to report up to ten years from the time the account was closed. 

Credit Cards:
Amex BCP 25K ~ Amex Clear 25K ~ Amex Platinum NPSL ~ Chase Freedom Visa 19.3K ~ CITI Dividend World Mastercard 20.3K ~ FIA Fidelity Investments Platinum Plus Visa 40K ~ First Hawaiian Bank Gold Visa 10K

Yes it will stay there for another 10 years, but generally, this really does not make a difference anymore, since the credit crisis, these have largely been ignored due to the understanding that everyone was overly-cautious and closing people's accounts left and right.
