Re: Will paying off an old account with a CA hurt my FICO score?

You can request a goodwill removal of the paid collection. For the collection that has not been paid, you can request a PFD. If you are not able to get a PFD, it will change the DOLA on the account as it will reflect the status change from unpaid to paid. The change in the DOLA should not affect the score. If you owed on a revolving account and it was affecting your utilization, then paying it off could increase your score because your utilization would drop.
