Unemployment Income and the Means Test

24 Jul Unemployment Income and the Means Test

Judge Rosenthal recently held In re Munger, — B.R. —-, 2007 WL 1810701 (Bkrtcy.D.Mass. 2007) that unemployment income is not included in the “current monthly income” for purposes of the means test.  The Court stated that the “way in which Congress chose to phrase the references in the sections supports the view that ‘a benefit received under the Social Security Act’ in § 101(10A)(B) was purposefully intended to be broader than ‘a social security benefit.’ ‘Unemployment compensation’ is included in this broader definition.”
