The 7 years an account is on credit report

Forum: Credit
Sophie Claire
so I am trying to understand the 7year rule. What if you have an account that was originally opened over 7 years ago, but then the debt is sold to collections, does that 7 years start over? Is it valid for collectors to collect debt if the account in question was originally opened over 7 years, or is it something that should be disputed? What do you do if you’re being hounded by collectors for accounts that are over the 7 years since original opening of said account?Read More...
Hello there. Great question. I have been working on my credit for a solid 3 years while trying to save every dime for a deposit. I'm disabled after working 36 years and needed a good car. Right as I was about to embark on this journey, some atty firm shows up on my credit report with 16 accts from different hospitals. I have always had insurance so how can this be?

Have you spoken to counselors at Greenpath? I found them to be SUPER helpful when I had credit card debt. The financial counseling is free, but the credit/debt management costs a small fee. They may be able to provide some additional guidance. I know from experience that student loans do not go away. You may want to consider calling them and getting a deferment or income based repayment program. (It may be $0) You may also be able to get your loans eliminated if you are permanently disabled.Read More...
