Does closing a bank acct affect your credit score?
Have BB&T bank acct which previously Bank Atlantic. Acct was opened in 2000 enjoying a senior free checking/svgs plus safety dep box that went from $50 yr. to $20 yr. In 2013 now as BB&T, box went to $55 yr and 2014 $70 and also notified of a monthly $10 'maintenance' charge. I use this acct for direct dep of my monthly pension.
Would like to close BB&T account and transfer to my 1986 free credit union chkg/svgs acct . Will this negatively impact my credit score?
