Question about BK and associated charge offs.

I am one of those who wishes I would have found this years ago.  I have a BK from 2004 so I've still got a few years until it falls off.  When I review my credit reports I see that the BK is listed as are a number of accounts that were included in the BK.  They do have the notation that states they were charged off with the BK, but do they still impact my score since they are listed seperately?

Re: Question about BK and associated charge offs.

I know very little about BK, but here's what I found in the Education section How will my FICO score consider BK?


It did say........the more accounts included in the bankruptcy filing, the more of an impact on your score.
