Completion of old credit card payments
I have 4 credit cards that are in collections. I have begun payment arrangements on two of them and I am trying to make arrangements for the last 2. Since I have started making the payment arrangements will making theses payments help to increase my credit score now or will the score not change until the arrangements are completed. Also these 4 collections show up as 8 cards in trouble. Once I have completed all necessary payments will both or all 8 creditors show the payment owed as being paid in full. With these payments being completed increase my credit score?
