If I pay off 2 open accounts in collections then how will that affect my credit score?
These 2 open collection accounts have small balances and were both included in my 2014 Chapter 7 bankruptcy. I am not sure why they are still showing as open?

if they were included in bankrupcty then they should not be open. you can dispute that to get it corrected. if you do decide to pay them, make sure you get a PAY FOR DELETE AGREEMENT as you want them REMOVED from your reports and not just marked as paid
