Having a long history of open accounts in good standing shows that you have been responsible with credit over a period of time. This is important to lenders as it demonstrates stability. Your grade will rise if you allow your existing accounts to mature.

Remember, your grade doesn't affect your score. The grade is assigned by Credit Karma to show you important factors in your credit score. Your actual score is calculated by TransUnion.
