Accounts aging out, help or hurt score?
Almost 50% of the accounts listed as closed on my report will be aging out this year in October. This will reduce the age of my credit, and I'm worried that this will drop my credit score. Opinions?

The fact that the accounts are closed means they have no significant impact on your credit score at this time.  Whatever the credit limit was on the accounts has already been removed from the calculation of your credit score. Potential creditors may have already seen how you paid your accounts in the past, and that would have been the significant interest they may have had.  The account age is ony important in currently active accounts and not of those that are closed.  So, it doesn't look like you will be having a problem.
