If you respond to your own answer....

Helpful to 2 out of 2 people

If you respond to your own answer, the chances of you getting an answer from someone else is less likely.  However to answer your question, credit accounts that are able to be included in a bankruptcy are reported on your credit report for upto 7 years after your last payment, or in some states, up to 7 years after your last payment arrangement.  The open date of the account is typically only counted towards your age of credit accounts; meaning if the account is in good condition, the older the account is, the better it is for your credit score.

I hope this help, and if it does, please thumbs up.
