- The potential impacts on credit reports: $$$$$Simple Class, Inc. will not provide any information gained from client's registration, course work or counseling to a credit reporting agency. Our courses will provide information about various financial options.

Bankruptcy remains on an individual's credit report lowering credit scores for 7 to 10 years. A credit report reflecting bankruptcy can impact the ability to obtain financing for a home, car and other lines of credit. Often employers and landlords will run a credit check with written consent from an applicant. A credit report reflecting bankruptcy may affect potential employment and housing. Creditors may report the participation in a debt management program to credit reporting agencies. Creditors may negatively view participation in a debt management program and not extend lines of credit to participants.
