Good afternoon. In order to file and be granted a discharge through a chapter 7 bankruptcy you must not have the means to pay back your unsecured creditors. At filing, you are required to disclose all sources of income received during the six month period prior to filing. Chapter 7 is a discharge of your debts, as a person, not a social security number, even if the source of income comes from different social security numbers. If you file the petition and do not disclose the income under the other social security number they would deny your petition and dismiss it.

I hope this helps with your question.
