What do I Bring to My Meeting of Creditors?

Regardless of whether your case is a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will need to bring your driver's license and social security card to your meeting of creditors. If you do not have a driver's license, you must bring a government issued photo I.D. If you filed a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you will also need to bring paystubs earned between the period you filed your case and the actual date of your meeting. At the meeting, the bankruptcy trustee assigned to your case will compare the information provided on your petition to the identification you bring to the meeting, so these must be accurate. The reason for this is the avoid bankruptcy fraud, identity theft, and the usage of any fake social security numbers to incur debt.
