Major Derogs Question

I have a student loan that in 2010 reported every month as 120 days late for four months. If all the lates are on one account are they scored as one or counted as multiple lates? Am I dinged every month like it was a new late posting?

Each late is counted individually even though they occurred on the same tradeline.

Yeah. But the FICO score ding isn't the same for each derog.....the first late will most likely hurt your score more than subsequent lates.
