Livonia, MI asked in Bankruptcy for Michigan

Q: In the Ch 7 means test, does my SSDI income count in the gross income calculation? If so, it would put my wife and in 13

So ssdi is not included the means test but may kick us into chapter 13 if it's considered excess income in the budget section, right?

A: If you're asking if SSDI is counted as income for purposes of the Current Monthly Income (CMI) number, the answer's no. It's not counted against you as income on the means test.
