I inadvertently missed payment and paid it in full 10 days after due date. Credit Score dropped.
I missed a payment for a credit card that I have had for many years. As soon as I realized the issue, I called and paid the balance off in full. Once they report next month that it is paid off, will my credit score recover to the prior score. Also, can I request them to remove the late payment status and will that also help my score?
