Re: Closing Aged Accounts.. Yes It Is Ok
From whatever date you close it, add ten years. It should report until the ten years are up.

We have reliable info from members that Equifax drops accounts much earlier than that. They dumped one of mine that had been closed for about 4 1/2 years.

There is no law requiring that closed accounts report for 10 years. Smiley Mad It's just custom.
