What happens after the statute of limitations runs out on credit card debt?

I read that the statute of limitations runs out after 6 years on unpaid credit card debt, I’m wondering when was the start date on the 6 years? was it when the first payment was missed? when the credit card company sold it to a collection agency? is there a way to find out if the 6 years has passed yet? or will the old debt just be removed from the credit report?
