Unemployment runs out before I can collect social. I have no 401k or savings, I can't pay the minimums and don't know even know which debt companies are reputable? Does using a debt company prevent me from applying another recourse later?

First - if your only income is Social Security and you have no significant assets you don't need to do anything since creditors cannot garnish SS income.
Second - I have never had a client who had anything good to say about debt consolidation companies.... Read more »

I have been in my chapter 13 for over 2 years and realized I was supposed to supply tax returns and refunds to the trustee but I haven’t. I’m not sure what my next step is as I’m afraid to bring it up and have my case dismissed.

You should turn in returns ASAP and contact your attorney if you have one. Otherwise contact the trustee and own up to your mistake.
It will only get worse if you ignore it and your case will get dismissed if you don’t makes it up somehow.
My chapter 13 In Michigan tax refund portion is silent. Will I get a refund? If so how much am I an entitled to keep if this is silent.

In the Eastern District of Michigan the standard plan requires you to turn over your refund. It is not a matter of the trustee grabbing it.
The good news is you can always amend your plan to account for change of circumstances. Show expenses for any un-budgeted event such as job loss and... Read more »

How much is the debt? You are going to have to deal with the debt sometime. If the debt is a garden variety judgment in a MI Court you could ask for a payment plan. Why not file the bankruptcy (if you can). In a Ch. 7 you can get back everything garnished in the 90 days before filing if it totals... Read more »

In addition to what Mr. Phillips said I would add the additional information that it depends whether you are seeking a discharge or whether for example you need to stop a foreclosure or get back a seized vehicle. In those examples you can file a Ch. 13 right away and get caught up on the past due... Read more »
