Bankruptcy Assistance for Members of the Military
Posted on 10 31,2016
Financial difficulties can befall any individual, regardless of his or her occupation, social standing, income, age, gender or any other factor. While filing for bankruptcy may be a very real and viable option for most people whose expenses far exceed their income, the same does not hold true for members of the military. In the majority of cases, the Department of Defense (DOD) considers filing for bankruptcy to be grounds for disciplinary action. The DOD believes that any member of the military who has a massive amount of unresolved debt, may be more susceptible to bribes and other methods of coercion, thus posing a higher risk to military safety and security. The DOD also expects military members to exemplify the highest level of ethics and morals, both on the job and in their personal lives.
