Re: Calculating Average Account Age

Just to clarify - even closed TLs count against age; therefore it does not matter whether a TL is open or closed when age is calculated?

If the score was calculated on the very day that a TL was closed -- then no, it wouldn't matter.  But it's unlikely that will happen.
Age is your friend. The score takes into account the age of the oldest TL -- so you don't want to close your very first CC.  It also takes into account the average age of all accounts -- so you don't want to close a bunch of accounts.
