Is Bryant, Hodge & Associates hurting my credit score?
The missed payments that led to the collection harm your credit score. A collection account on your credit report further reduces your ability to qualify for new credit.

When this happens, if you don’t dispute the accounts with the credit bureaus and get them all removed, they will harm your credit score.
