[ Edited ]

I figured but making sure i know they count as credit limit for debt to limit ratio
but trying to figure out what my average age of accounts will be now that I've closed some of my oldest credit cards
and they will go off my books sometime in 2022~ 2023

the 4 cards i' opened this past month will be 10 years by then plus my oldest credit card now will be cap one opened in 07 heh
I read somewhere on my report that my average age for credit lenght is at 5.5 years or something and my oldest one is 10 .6 years old

Thanks Guys
