That depends on how you conduct your financial affairs after you have been discharged. If you have a reasonable income and are careful with your money you should be able to access credit in 2 to 4 years. It takes a few years to damage your credit – it takes a few to put it right again.
We usually suggest you apply for a secured creditor card after you have been discharged as a tool to help you rebuild your credit. Don’t get a prepaid card – these won’t help you rebuild. Ask whatever bank you are dealing with if they offer secured cards and how to get one.
