What do I Bring to My Meeting of Creditors?

When you file for bankruptcy, you are appointed a bankruptcy trustee by the courts. This individual oversees your case. This person’s responsibilities are to verify that the information provided in your bank statements is accurate. To do this, they need documents that prove your identity.

Documents to bring to your creditor meeting

Whether you filed Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy you need to bring the following documents with you to your meeting of creditors:

  • Driver’s License
  • Social Security Card

If you filed a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you would also need to bring pay stubs earned between the period you filed your case and the actual date of your meeting.

Additional Documents

You might also wish to include additional supporting documents to your meeting, including:

  • W-2 statements
  • Tax returns
  • Retirement account statements
  • Car registrations
  • Bank statements
  • Mortgage documents
