Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Can you confirm that you are asking about a military pension? That would be unusual for someone who is receiving Social Security benefits - I'd expect to see either disability pay or retirement pay, or a combination of the two. Also, what kind of VA benefits are you asking about?
Military retirement pay and Veterans Administration Pay are not subject to garnishment by a bankruptcy Court.
I don't think that's exactly what you asked - I think you were asking if you needed to list Military Retirement Pay, VA Disability Pay, and possibly Social Security Pay when you file for bankruptcy. You will need to list these payments as exempt property.
If you are wondering if these retirement and disability assets are going to show up on a credit check, the answer is "yes." A credit report will show incoming money, and it will show your length of service. You may be tempted not to list these, but it's extremely important in a bankruptcy to be forthcoming about your assets. Otherwise, the bankruptcy court can decide not to discharge you in bankruptcy.
Can you clarify this for me - your credit reports aren't showing an average bank balance?
Okay, I think that we're talking about two different kinds of credit reports.
Regardless, though, your question is really drifting out of Military Law and into Bankruptcy. I am going to "opt out" and ask for your question to be recategorized to Bankruptcy.
