Question, I’m currently a federal employee and just received a tentative offer for a higher grade promtion . I answered Yes to #13 on the OF 306 because of an overpayment from the Federal Government for about $2000. With the pandemic, gas going up and life I ended up having to file bankruptcy and the overpayment was added as a list of creditors and the amount was discharged and should a $0 balance. The problem is , the account has not been updated to show a $0 balance and it’s showing that amount is still outstanding. I emailed to have it updated and when I talked to a rep she said they are so backlogged with requests and they’re shortstaffed and don’t know when they’ll get it to it. I check with them weekly to get an update.
I gave a brief explanation in the allowed area on the OF306 and I wanted to ask you all if you think that will be an issue with this tentative offer. I hope not…thank you in advance!
As long as you provide all required information and can show the debts have been resolved it will not be an issue. Bankruptcy is a legal means to resolve debts and as long as you acted responsibly it will not be an issue.
