Here’s more from Market Watch:
Consumer bankruptcies steadily increased during August in another sign that financial distress is increasing for many people.
Americans filed more than 39,000 bankruptcy cases last month, an 18% increase from the same point last year, according to new data from Epiq Bankruptcy, a bankruptcy data-analytics firm.
There were more than 41,600 new bankruptcy cases filed last month, including businesses filing for bankruptcy in order to manage their debts. That’s also up approximately 18% from last August, Epiq’s data showed.
It’s the 13th straight month when the number of bankruptcies recorded a year-over-year rise.
Bankruptcy cases plunged during the pandemic. It usually takes several years of struggling with debt and a serious life event — like potential eviction or medical issues — for many consumers to file for bankruptcy, experts say.
“The continued year-over-year increases indicate the anticipated growth of bankruptcy filings is becoming a reality,” said Gregg Morin, Epiq Bankruptcy’s vice president of business development and revenue.
