Paying off old collections accounts?

QuestionsPaying off old collections accounts?
asked 3 years ago

I’m trying to rebuild my credit and pay off debts!
I have a medical collections account from 2011 for $ 100. I have actually been denied credit for this! This is the only bad thing on my credit report.
Would it even be worth it to pay it off at this point? And, yes, they are still updating monthly.
I have heard that paying off old accounts like this could actually make it worse?
