Credit Repair and Credit Cards After Bankruptcy

Watch the video or continue reading below.

When a person goes into bankruptcy he has to hand in all his credit cards to the trustee. After that person has been discharged from bankruptcy, he or she is often a good credit risk, since that person has no debt. Regardless, a discharged bankrupt often has a difficult time getting a new credit card.

An option is to acquire a "secured credit card". A "secured credit card" is a card backed-up or secured by funds you have deposited with the financial institution. The card looks like a credit card, and acts like a credit card but will have a limit depending on the amount of money that secures the card.

Using a secured credit card is a quick way to rebuild your credit rating after being discharged from a bankruptcy.
