Hi there,

It sounds like we have not yet received this update from the credit bureau. You may want to contact your lender directly to be sure they have updated the status of your loan. We can only display changes on your report that we receive directly from a credit bureau.

Accounts remain on your reports for years. Just because you pay off an account and close it does not mean that it is removed from your reports, nor would you want it to be. Having closed tradelines that are positive with a good payment history are a great thing. You want them on your reports as long as they can be. In general a positive closed account will remain on your reports for 10 years, sometimes longer if you are lucky. Under no circumstance should you ever try to remove positive history.
