As mentioned in previous blogs, stimulus checks and related payments under federal law that are related to the COVID-19 do not count as monthly income for those looking to file under Chapter 7, and these payments do not count as disposable income for debtors looking to file under Chapter 13. Thus, receiving a stimulus check will not affect your eligibility to file under either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.
