Can I Get a Job, Housing, and Benefits if I File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?


Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy can be a difficult, yet beneficial decision to make. It’s important to understand the effects it may have on your future job, housing, and benefits prospects. While filing for bankruptcy will remain on your credit report and may appear in background checks, there are still ways you can get a job, housing, and benefits after filing.


The most important thing to remember is that even though declaring bankruptcy can affect how employers view you as an applicant or how landlords see you as a tenant, it doesn’t necessarily mean that all of these doors are shut for good. You should be honest about your financial situation in any applications or interviews that come up after declaring bankruptcy; this will give potential employers or landlords an understanding of why you declared bankruptcy and why they shouldn’t worry about any possible history of nonpayment.
