New Bankruptcy Median Income Standards

Pennsylvania Bankruptcy Median Income Standards

On November 10, 2011, new median income standards for Pennsylvania were released.  These figures are important because if the household income, based on family size is lower than the median income, there is no presumption of abuse in a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.  Further, depending on the situation a Petitioner may be eligible for a three year plan in Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.  Although the following median income standards are very important there are numerous other factors needed to determine whether an individual or marries couple qualifies for bankruptcy protection, and if so, what Chapter of the Bankruptcy Code would be most beneficial.

Pennsylvania Median Incomes:

One person Household Median Income: $45,092

Two Person Household: $53,091

Three Person Household: $66,487

Four Person Household: $76,682
