What you are referring to is the surplus income obligation.

The threshold amount changes based on the number of people in the household and for 2011 looks as follows:

# People Threshold Income
1 1926
2 2398
3 2948
4 3579
5 4059
6 4578
7+ 5097

Ultimately what happens is this is the amount of net income allowed given the number of people in the house and anything above this amount you must pay 50% of as part of your bankruptcy.
