Re: Credit file after BK7

Have you checked your credit reports since your discharge? If not, get all 3 from or the individual CRAs if you've had your free reports within the last year. You want the full reports, not a 3rd party or 3 in 1, there's more info in the full reports.

Most likely, you have a thin report if you don't have many open accounts, but you really need to check them and make sure everything is reporting correctly.

AFAIK, your old accounts should appear as  included in bankruptcy (IIB).  And you should check your reports to verify that all accts IIB are reporting that way, and not as open collection accts.
