AAoA Question

My 3 oldest accts are my student loans. They happen to be in default(but being rehabbed). Doesn't it matter if they are currently derogatory, or does FICO and the other monitoring services only count closed accts and accts in good standing?

All accounts are counted closed,open any on your CR no matter stauts i.e. derog or good standing

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Every time you open a new TL is when the avg changes 3.6 is not bad at all

Re: AAoA Question

OK, that makes sense. That's why I see the hit on my AAoA. Once those accts come out of collections and report current as paid as agreed, then is it safe to assume my AAoA will reset?

If you have charge-offs reporting as a CO, and then report as a positive, AAoA will not change. If the COs hit 7 yrs and end up deleting instead of updating, then AAoA could then change.
