Removing Old Accounts

I have 3-6 old closed accounts that are still being reported by the OC, even though the are past the SOL.

 

All these accounts are in good standing should I delete them or let them stay on?

Re: Removing Old Accounts

Closed good accounts stay on your CR for 10 years.  They count toward credit history and account age.  Removing them could hurt your score.

 

And when you say SOL, were you talking about reporting SOL?

Re: Removing Old Accounts

Thanks for the reply.

 

The acct(s). in question are from 1999.

 

I will leave them on her acct. and let them help her, at this point she needs all the help she can get.
