Abstract:     
Personal bankruptcy, unemployment insurance, and Aid to Families with Dependent Children provide income and wealth insurance. Because they have similar purposes, it should not be surprising that some households use more than one of these programs or that the programs are substitutes. This study contributes to the personal bankruptcy literature by examining this interaction and finds that increases in unemployment benefits decrease the probability of bankruptcy. (JEL D12, K35)
