Chapter 13 Or Wage Earner Plan

Call: 888-297-6203

The wage-earner plan is a nickname given to Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The reason to give this name to the chapter 13 bankruptcy is due to the characteristics of the bankruptcy chapter. Unlike Chapter 7, Chapter 13 focuses on clearing as much as debt possible using a reliable source of income through the next 3-5 years. The tenure depends on the debt and the disposable income. There is a misconception that a wage-earner plan does not result in a discharge. However, there can be a discharge if the future disposable income isn’t sufficient to repay some of the debt. It is also not a guarantee to prevent all assets. As no assets are for free and there must be payments made to retain or hold the assets.
