It can take a couple of months for it to get to a closed status.  figure 30 days min and 120 days max.  If you do not see it as closed (provided you paid it completly off) then I would start filing disputes with the three major agencies.  As stated already it will be 7 years before it is removed, but showing it paid and closed should help with your score.

Seven years. Even when you pay it off, it will remain on your credit report for seven years.
