Prepaid Mastercard

August 29th, 2011 by Questions

I am about to file for bankruptcy in the near future and I wanted to know about prepaid Mastercards.

After I file, can I get one, or do I have to wait until I am discharged?

The rule with credit cards and a bankruptcy is that the day you file for bankruptcy you cannot have any credit cards in your possession. So after you have filed you technically can apply for a credit card, although I might suggest you look into a secured credit card (see Horizon Plus or Capital One) as opposed to a prepaid credit card. The reason is that the prepaid versions usually do nothing to help re-establish your credit, but the secured credit card will.
