Calculating Average Account Age
I am aware that the average age of your accounts is a factor in your credit score. However, what type accounts are included in this average age, specifically: Are all credit card accounts included or are there some cards which are excluded? Are mortgages, student, auto or other installment loans included? Are closed accounts of any type included, or just open accounts? I'm managing my mother's accounts, and she has 11 CC and numerous other accounts. It appears that cancelling some of the new CCs would increase the average age of the CC accounts, but I don't know if anything else gets factored in. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
