Our threshold is the median income for your state. To find out what that means, follow these steps:
Pull up the US Trustee’s website on all things means test and scroll down until you find the drop down menu titled “Data Required for Completing the 122A Forms and the 122C Forms.”
Once you’ve made a selection in the drop down menu, you’ll be brought to another section of the UST’s website, which, at long last, will give you a link to the “Median Family Income Based on State/Territory and Family Size.” That, in turn, will show you the median income for a household with the same number of people as yours.
❗❗ This is the only way to make sure you’re looking at the most current number. Since the numbers change, there is no single link you can bookmark that will always give you the most up to date numbers without going through the process described above. ❗❗
At that point, your job is easy: Look at the total household income you’ve just calculated for yourself and compare it to the number on the chart for your state and household size.
If your income is less than that number, you are below the median income and below Upsolve's income threshold.
