OCTOBER INSIGHT REPORT

According to the latest AIS Insight Report, October bankruptcies totaled to 40,171 reflecting a slight uptick from the previous month (Figure 1). However, filings were still down 40.76% from October 2019. 

We’ve continued to monitor the activity of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings. Our October analysis revealed that filings are still well below the monthly averages (Figure 1). Chapter 7 bankruptcies yielded a 32% decrease from the 42,222 filings recorded in October 2019 (Figures 2 & 3). Chapter 13 bankruptcies reflected a 56% decrease from the 24,958 filings in October 2019 (Figures 2 & 3).

As detailed in The Wall Street Journal, there is a growing danger that our country is facing. New challenges, like cold weather and exhausted financial resources, lie ahead and could drastically impact American households and small businesses. We will monitor new challenges, the effects of stimulus checks, forbearances, and moratorium programs and provide critical insights.
