Since we can't see your information at all, this is just "possible" reasons:  An account fell off the credit report so its age would be removed from the age calculation, or you applied for a new account and that will shorten the age.  You'd have to check your full credit reports to see, and that is one reason we are advised to check all three credit reports annually.

If you are getting this information from Credit Karma, ignore it. The average age of accounts that Credit Karma gives me is way off from what it actually is. They most definitely have some type of glitch or error in their methods of calculating average age of accounts.
