Re: Never Be Late, Ever

Recent late payments affect your credit score more than aged late payments, up to about the 2 year mark. However, late payments remain on the credit report for 7 years with the account being reported as a negative account.

Even though my credit score is in the high 700s, I'm looking forward to June, 2015 when my only delinquent account is scheduled to go into positive status.
