Do you need to apply for bankruptcy?
Debt has a way of creeping up on you. It’s easy to acquire a large amount of debt when faced with house payments, car payments, or student loans, but equally easy to build up debt through long-term illness, redundancy, or having to take a cut in pay.
If you recognize your own situation in any of the following scenarios then it may be time to consider bankruptcy:
- – Are you reliant on credit cards to pay for even basic day-to-day items like food?
- – Are you paying out more in interest than you are paying off your credit card balance?
- – Do you find yourself constantly borrowing money from friends and family?
- – Have you signed up for, or are considering signing up for, a ‘doorstep’ loan?
- – Have you had your possessions repossessed to pay for your debts?
- – Have your creditors sold your debt or placed your account with a collection agency?
- – Do you find yourself lying awake at night worrying about your bills?
If you think that the only answer to getting out of your debts is to struggle, then we have news for you; you don’t. You don’t have to subject yourself to all that emotional trauma – speak to our Licensed Insolvency Trustees (LITs) who can advise you on a way to vastly reduce, or even eliminate, your debts.
Frequently asked questions
Is bankruptcy the only option for clearing my debts?
No, not necessarily. Depending on the amount and type of debt that you have, you may be able to go through a different form of debt management. There are a number of different solutions, but we highly recommend speaking to one of our professionals first before making a decision. Your initial appointment with us is free, so you have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Can my pension be seized as part of bankruptcy?
There are two sources of retirement income in Canada; the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Old Age Security (OAS). Federal and Provincial laws are in place to ensure that your pension income remains unaffected by bankruptcy. However, mutual funds, marketable securities, rental income properties, and tax-free saving accounts are seizable. If you are unsure how your pension will be affected by bankruptcy, speak to our dedicated team.
