Does My Age Help My Credit Score?

Does My Age Help My Credit Score?

Does credit scoring favor older, more mature people?

Nope.

Credit scores do not consider a consumer’s age. Instead, it’s the age of your credit file, not your age as a person, that directly impacts your credit score. The length of your credit history accounts for about 15% of your credit score.
