Unsecured Debt Vs. Secured Debt
When you are considering filing for bankruptcy, it is important to consider whether your loans are secured or unsecured. It can make a difference in whether you can keep your personal items and what type of bankruptcy is best for you to file.
Secured debt is debt that is secured by collateral (property) such as:
- Car loans
- PMSI (purchase money security interest)
Secured debt is dischargeable in bankruptcy, but the collateral is returned to the creditor. For example, if you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your bank may repossess your vehicle.
Unsecured debt is debt not secured by collateral, including:
- Medical bills
- Personal loans
- Credit card debts
Most kinds of unsecured debt are dischargeable in bankruptcy. An exception is student loans. It is important to evaluate all of your available options and that which will best suit your needs.
