APRIL INSIGHT REPORT

 

According to the latest AIS Insight Report, April bankruptcy filings totaled to 40,888. Although we observed a slight decrease from the previous month, this marks a 6% increase from total filings in the same month last year (Figure 1 & 2).  This is the largest year-over-year rise in total monthly filings since June 2010 and the first year-over-year increase since February 2020.

In addition, we observed a 12% increase in Chapter 7 bankruptcies and a 1.6% decrease in Chapter 13 bankruptcies when compared to the same month in the previous year (Figure 3 & 4).
