The May 15, 2024, update to the bankruptcy means test expense standards for Connecticut are no longer based on counties. Therefore, they do not work with LegalConsumer's architecture without additional revisions, which current usage does not justify. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Part 1: Income
Connecticut State "Median Income" Test

Compare your household income over the past six calendar months to the state median. If your monthly household income is less than the Connecticut median income for a household of your size, you are presumed to be eligible to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy under Section 707(b)(2).

(*The applicable household size is the number that would currently be allowed as exemptions on your federal income tax return, plus the number of any additional dependents whom you support.)

Form B122A-1 requires you to:

  1. total your income for the last six calendar months [Line 11],
  2. average it, then
  3. annualize it, and then
  4. compare it to the Connecticut median for your size household [Line 13].
    • If your income is below this amount, you meet the requirements of the "means test" (section 707(b)(2) of the bankruptcy code) to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
The table above makes it a bit simpler to figure out. Compare your six-month total income over the last six calendar months to the "6 Mo. Total" in the chart below to get a rough idea of which side of the line you fall. Pay attention to the rules about household size.
