Pennsylvania Median Income Changes for 2016 – More Debtors Qualify for Bankruptcy

Pennsylvania Median IncomeThe Pennsylvania median income has increased again for most families as of April  1, 2016. Generally, increases in the median income help more debtors qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy rather that being forced into Chapter 13.  This increase should also help some debtors avoid the bankruptcy means test entirely. The latest Pennsylvania median income numbers are as follows:


Individual Family of 2 Family of 3 Family of 4*
$49,400 $58,256 $73,322 $86,112
*For each additional family member over four, add $8400. Applies to cases filed on or after April 1, 2016.  Source: U.S. Census Bureau.
