How to Remove Closed Student Loans from Your Credit Report

How to Remove Closed Student Loans from Your Credit Report

Staying on top of your credit score means being proactive. One of the ways you can help it rise is by removing accounts that are closed from your credit report. Closing an account does not mean that it will no longer be on your record. One common question in this area comes from student debt. How exactly can you remove closed student loans from your report?

This is our step by step guide on how to remove closed student loans from your credit report:

Know the Factors

Before you make any decisions, you need to know the factors that make up your credit score. Your available credit, the age of your credit accounts, and your payment history, for example, are all part of your score.

How often you apply for new credit cards and the number of closed accounts present can also impact your score. Closed accounts hurt you even if they were paid off in full. Any late or missed payments or charge-offs can still be seen and affect your overall score.

Weigh Your Options

Don’t remove things indiscriminately. Removing a closed account with negative information on it makes perfect sense, of course. But removing an account with a mostly positive history would not be beneficial and could ultimately hurt your credit score.

Scrutinize your credit report for closed accounts and determine whether they’re good or bad for your score. For student loans, it is common to see missed payments early on before the students in question find stable careers.

Removing the Account

Removing a closed account from your credit report can be tricky, but you do have a few options. These include:

  • Write a goodwill letter
  • Dispute inaccuracies
  • Wait it out

Writing a goodwill letter applies when you couldn’t pay due to illness or something else beyond your control. Keep in mind that the creditor or loan service provider has no duty to remove the closed account.

If they do so, they will be doing it in good faith and will likely look at your previous payment history. Disputing accuracies is another option. It requires careful examination of your loans. You will have to justify each missed payment and give your reasons for believing you have been wronged.

Finally, waiting the process out is another solution. Some closed accounts can remain on your report for up to ten years, however, is it’s not the best choice.

Getting Help

Credit repair companies can be the ally you desperately need in the battle for stellar credit. They specialize in these types of cases and understand the oppressive laws and regulations behind student loans. Allowing a credit repair company to go to bat for you can take a lot of stress off your back, too.

They will typically provide you with all the education you need to clean things up and maintain a great score. Finally, bad credit has an effect on student loans and interest rates. And, of course, student loans impact your credit in much the same way. This is a vital part of your report that cannot go ignored.

Do Credit Repair Companies Work?

 

Do Credit Repair Companies Work?

You might be wondering do credit repair companies work? It’s tough to know how a company can help your individual issue, but insightful testimonials from other customers might make the process easier. Here are some testimonials of successes customers of Go Clean Credit have had in working with our credit repair programs.

Credit Repair

Do credit repair companies work to help you raise your credit score? In our experience in working with customers looking to increase their credit score, we’ve seen great success. One customer has seen their score increase from 519 to 650 in a short amount of time. This allowed the customer to secure a 30 year fixed mortgage at a great rate. We were also able to get an almost 4-point lower interest rate, which is the difference of about $350/month or $125,000 over the life of the loan. Another customer saw their score raise 120 points in less than 6 months.

With our programs that are tailored to your individual issue you too can see this kind of success. Sure credit repair takes time, but having a team who cares about your situation makes all the difference. Don’t take our word for it. Here’s a testimonial showing our credit repair programs work: “I just wanted to let you know what a good and quick job I think you are doing. I have been checking my credit on a regular basis and have watched it jump over 150 points in 3 months! Thank you for your help.” – Shay J.

Mortgage

All lenders for mortgages typically look for the same basic thing, your ability to repay the home loan. If you can afford to make your mortgage payments on time each month, there is not much for them to worry about. If you have good credit, you’ve been a good employer, have a positive history of income, and your assets are all in order you’ll qualify for a mortgage in no time. In our experience in working with customers looking to qualify for a mortgage, we’ve seen people increase their score and refinance a mortgage that makes sense for them.

In one case, one of our customers was able to buy another home and have their mortgage broker comment on how much his credit score has improved. Here is a testimonial showing our mortgage programs work: “I know everyone’s situation is different but for me personally they improved my score over 80 points in just a couple months and made my dream come true of being a homeowner. 4 months ago I would have never thought I would be in my dream home and just got a credit card with a 10k limit, in which I definitely will be more responsible this time.” – Mike P.

Bankruptcy

The process of filing personal bankruptcy can be a very stressful task, but once you’ve found the right person to help you it can be relieving. You’ll have to answer some tough questions about your finances currently and in the past. Having someone understand your situation can allow you to figure out how you can survive paying off your debts while maintaining a good standard of living. With our help, we can have you back on your feet in a reasonable time.

One customer we worked with was deciding to either file for bankruptcy or increase their credit score. Within 6 months we were able to raise their credit score 12o points and avoid the damaging result of filing for bankruptcy. Here is a testimonial showing our bankruptcy programs works: “I wanted to show my appreciation to your company. I came in with a fresh bankruptcy that was really hurting my life. My credit score actually went up after just two months of signing up with your service. Your help and support really helped me get in the right direction. Thank you Go Clean Credit!” – James V.
