The Pennsylvania median Income has increased, meaning that more debtors in Pennsylvania will qualify for filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The higher the median income, the easier it is for a debtor to meet that presumption that they do not have enough income to leave them with "disposable income," and are therefore eligible to file under Chapter 7 bankruptcy. A debtor whose income for the debtor's family size is above the PA median income must take the Chapter 7 Means Test to determine whether he is eligible for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. 


The NEW current Pennsylvania median income figures, as of April 1st, 2015 are as follows:

Individual: $48,982

Family of 2: $57,870

Family of 3: $72,886

Family of 4: $85,765

Family of 5: $93,865

Family of 6: $101,965

Family of 7: $110,065
