New Law Helps Disabled Veterans in Chapter 13 Plans

Disabled veterans facing bankruptcy, got a big boost yesterday when the HAVEN Act became law.

Disabled veterans get a break under Chapter 13 of the bankruptcy law

From now on, disabled veterans can’t be forced to use their veterans disability payment to fund debt repayment plans.  Here in Northern Virginia, there are many disabled veterans, who are also working. Those veteran families had been considered high income and forced into very high payment plans under bankruptcy Chapter 13. 

Now the bankruptcy court is not allowed to consider the disability pay, in calculating what these veterans can “afford” to pay their creditors.

Senator Tammy Baldwin was the chief sponsor of this bill in the US Senate.   

(I was one of the members of NACBA who lobbied for this bill on Capitol Hill earlier this year.)

I participated in a class on this new law, September 5, 2019, and kept some notes.

Here’s some detail that shows exactly what benefits are covered. 5 HAVEN Act TPM Addendum 6 Haven_Act_Faqs From USTP   And where to go to find out what benefits exactly are being HAVEN Ebenefits Mypay.
