Can Utility Bills Be Discharged in Bankruptcy?

Obligations to utility services can be listed in a bankruptcy petition. It is a violation of Public Service Commission regulations for a utility service to terminate the service to a bankrupt on a basis of their filing a bankruptcy petition. However, a utility may, and in most cases, will, require that you pay a security deposit to that utility to guarantee that post petition obligations shall be paid timely. Since you have other options available for Cable and Cell Phone Service they can disconnect service.
