Removing things over 7 years even if not derogatory?
I have a couple of accounts that are about to be 7 years old. One account was never late. Is it still advisable to have it removed if it doesn't come off automatically?

Derogatory accts over 10y yrs old

So what if you have derogatory accounts that are over 10-20 years old, which are still on my credit report, that should have been taken off? What could be done in this case?

then don't worry about it,  let if fall off on its own.  The system is good at getting old info off your report on time.  Why put the effort into worring about or trying to get things removed if you don't have to.  

Good luck

If any old accounts are not showing derogatory remarks, but are showing good payment history, they are actually helping you.
