Will closing a checking account impact my credit score?

Over ten years ago, I set up an additional checking account for my investments only. I use this account for transferring investment money to several financial and fund accounts and keep it funded by having a certain amount of money taken out of my paycheck. I kept this checking account separate from my family checking account. As I approach retirement next year, I will not be feeding this investment account with my paycheck. Will closing this checking account impact my credit score?

Closing a checking accoutn will not impact your credit score.  Opening an account or adding  overdraft protection might impact your credit card.  For more information on factors that impact your credit score: https://www.investopedia.com/ask/answers/040715/how-does-your-checking-account-affect-your-credit-score.asp
