From what I see it does not effect utilization, and it's a continually updated number each month. Your current statement balance is what's reported. While I haven't been able to identify a down side to this I haven't been able to find an upside either, other than an aging tradeline.

TU has always hated me. Even when I had all scores in the 700s, TU's was always the lowest. I wish I could borrow a few points from EQ to give to TU. )
Yikes!! Why the difference in scores?

cheddar, you hit the nail on the head. There is a moritorium on shutting off gas in the winter here, and our utility company is pretty expensive. So, if one were to get into a tight spot, people put off paying their gas bill a month or so in the winter, because it can't get turned off. WE-Energies' solution to that...TU reporting baby! Too many CRs here have derogs from WE-Energies.

Can they legally refuse to take you off of an account? That's pretty astonishing, to be stuck with another person's utilities, even when you're no longer related!
Very smart of them cheddar. But, when you are still joint on the account with the ex... They wouldn't take me off of the account, even after I established my own account at my new place. ?!?!?
