Things to Bring to Your Meeting of Creditors

Your trustee will need to see your photo ID and proof of your Social Security number generated by someone besides you.  They also require a copy of your most recently filed Federal tax return (your attorney will normally send that in a week before the hearing).

 

You can bring a Driver’s License, state-issued identification, or your passport for a photo ID.  For proof of your Social Security number, you can bring your Social Security card (not a copy of it) or an original W-2 or 1099 that has your full Social Security number on it.

 

If you don’t have both, your trustee will reset the meeting for you to bring the missing ID.  For some clients, it’s hard enough to get time off from work to make the first meeting.  Bringing both forms of ID ensures you won’t have to return for that.  To be extra sure, bring a copy of your most recent tax return in case the trustee did not receive it.
