Sometimes it may take a while for the credit report to be updated with all of the accounts that were included in the BK. The update reflecting closed and included in the BK would need to be reported by the credit grantor. Sometimes there may be a lag on that reporting. I hope this helps better than someone just saying that since they are part of your credit history.... since that is not what your question was, nor was your question asking about erasing credit information. They will eventually show as closed and included in the BK. Hope this is more helpful to your actual question.

Because they are part of your credit history and will show on your credit for 7 years.  Bankruptcy does not instantly erase credit information, as is explained in the articles on this site.
