Profit Sharing Employer & 9 Months Period

April 29th, 2009 by Questions

Just have a question regarding a quarterly profit share my company gives if there is a profit and how does it affect my monthly surplus. I had read if you make over a certain amount over the 9 month period your bankruptcy can be extended to 24 months even for a first time bankrupt person. Or would I just pay more at the end of the month if I received it in to the trustee as it isn`t monthly I would receive it if any it`s 4 times a year if we get it and we are talking maybe an extra take home $1000 that month.

Thanks in advance.
