Do paid student loans help/hurt your credit score?
My student loans have been paid in full going on 4 years now. I know some closed accounts help your credit score.. if I request these to be removed will it hurt my score/report?

They show you had a student loan and they were paid off, 

you can't remove the from your Credit Report,  they will drop off on their own. 

Do they help your Credit Score,  No as they are closed accounts.

Do they help with a Creditor looking at your Credit Report ,   could depends on who's looking at them.

If the loans were not paid, they would badly affect your credit score.  Glad you have them paid off (as you are too, I'm sure).  Now,please take the timie to re-read the articles here.  They really are very helpful.
