The senior population of the United States is expected to grow rapidly over the next twenty years. Rather than enjoying their golden years, increasingly older Americans are struggling with less income, greater debt and insufficient retirement savings. The average amount of debt held by seniors has soared over the last decade. Many now rely on credit cards to cover their basic living expenses. Rising mortgage debt has compromised the use of home equity as a retirement nest egg. There are few easy solutions. Two tools available to seniors to combat financial distress are reverse mortgages and bankruptcy. Reverse mortgages allow seniors to tap their home equity to pay off outstanding debts or supplement monthly income. Bankruptcy provides an opportunity to obtain a fresh start by discharging certain debts or adjusting one’s financial affairs. The two options—reverse mortgages and bankruptcy—are not mutually exclusive.

Why You Should Attend: Learn how to best help your older clients by understanding the intersection between reverse mortgages and bankruptcy and when they can work together to prevent foreclosure or put a senior on more solid financial footing.

For criminal justice debtors and those with civil fines, bankruptcy can be a powerful tool. It may eliminate the obligation to repay these debts or provide an orderly mechanism for repaying certain debts that cannot be discharged. Bankruptcy can also open the door to relief, such as expungement, record sealing, or restoration of a driver’s license, that may otherwise be unavailable due to outstanding debt. This webinar will provide an overview of the application of bankruptcy law to criminal justice debt and civil fines.

Why You Should Attend: Not all criminal justice debt and civil fines are created equally. Learn about the different kinds of criminal justice debt and civil fines, including which are dischargeable in bankruptcy and which are not.
