Are my disability payments considered income when filing bankruptcy? by Menomonee Falls Bankruptcy Attorney

Are my disability payments considered income when filing bankruptcy?   by Menomonee Falls Bankruptcy Attorney

There are two-parts to this answer.

  1. Social security disability income (SSDI) is not considered income for the purposes of the “means test.”  Meaning, SSDI will not be considered if you are considering a Ch. 7.
  2. Private disability income (AFLAC, etc.) is considered income, and depending on how much you receive, you may or may not qualify for a Ch. 7 bankruptcy.

As always, it is best to consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney who will determine how your disability income is classified.
