Hi JACustomer,
What type or debt is this for?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I filed chapter 7 bancruptcy in california. My credit union seized my cheking account and savings. Filling date was 5/22 my ssdi check was direct deposited on 6/3. I do have a cc that was included in the bankruptcy with them. do they have the right to seize my accounts?
Expert:  cfortunato replied 7 years ago.
By federal law, SSDI cannot be taken for cc debt of any kind. This is the case whether or not you have filed a bankruptcy. However, since you have filed, you just have to show the credit union a copy of the "Notice of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Case" that you received when you filed to the credit union, so that they release your account.
