Declaring bankruptcy while receiving Social Security

by | May 6, 2016 | Chapter 7

Most New Jersey retirees are living on a very tight budget, doing everything they can to make ends meet. In fact, a lot of retirees feel like they did in their younger years when they were just starting out financially, saving every penny and constantly worried financial concerns. The problem is, Uncle Sam does not promise generous raises in the future. Quite, the contrary, and the older we get, the less we have to look forward to in terms of increasing our personal wealth and financial comforts.

When you add a high credit card bill, high mortgage and high car payments to a retiree’s limited income, his or her financial situation can get out of control very quickly. In fact, looking into the future, a retiree burdened with debt might not see any sign that those bills will ever get paid down. For New Jersey retirees in this kind of situation, it could be high time to file for bankruptcy. In fact, the decision to file for bankruptcy might be the best financial choice a retiree in this kind of situation can make.

Indeed, by resolving toxic debt that is impossible to pay off, a retiree could remarkably improve his or her financial situation from constantly being in the red to finally getting back into the black again. The gift of financially stability is such a special and important one for any retiree during his or her golden years, which should be filled with carefree joy, unhindered time with family and the love of good friends.
