JULY INSIGHT REPORT

Bankruptcies Remain Down, as Initial Coronavirus Relief Programs Conclude

According to the latest AIS Insight Report, July bankruptcies totalled 42,839, marking a 33% decrease from the 64,320 bankruptcies filed in July 2019 (Figure 1). Chapter 11 filings continue to rise, up 52% from the same month last year.

Our month-over-month comparison reveals that bankruptcy filings increased by less than 1%. And while bankruptcies rose for a second consecutive month, volumes still remain below historical averages.

In July, we commented on a drastic 3-month decline in Chapter 13 filings. Experts speculated that high unemployment numbers meant debtors may not have the financial ability to pay in a Chapter 13. In July, we witnessed an 8% increase in Chapter 13 filings (Figures 2 & 3). Conversely, Chapter 7 bankruptcies accounted for 74% of all filings, marking a 1% decrease from June. (Figures 2 & 3).
