A debtor that files for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy reorganization will have their debts consolidated into one lump sum and will then make monthly payments for three to five years into one account according to their proposed plan that must be pre-approved by the federal court. An appointed Trustee will manage the account will distribute the funds from the debtor's payments to the creditors. A bankruptcy reorganization helps to prevent the debtor from losing their assets and ruining their credit, while also allowing the creditors to recoup as much money as possible.

At the end of the term, if money is still owed to the creditors, it is automatically discharged and wiped clean.
