No, probably not.  You will still owe more or less the same amount of money, unless you are making massive payments.

Latest scores: Walmart TU: 769. MyFICO TU: 769. DCU EQ: 755. MyFICO EQ: 780. PSECU EX: 756. MyFICO EX: 780.

Re: Raising my Fico score

+1 The more important issue, at least in my opinion, is the flip-side of the question..... avoiding possible score damage. With the termination of the deferrment, billling is now done. One late will do far greater damage than any slow upward creep in score as the TL ages and the balance is reduced. Dont be late
