Hey guys.. in need of some advice/guidance here.

I am a Wells Fargo employee that filed personal bankruptcy last year. One of my discharged debt is with WF. So WF already knows that I've filed BK. Now because of FINRA, certain members of my division are required to have the series 7 license for 2012.

Question - Once I file the U-4 and HR gets a hold of my "declaration/disclosure"... can/will they deny me to take the exam? Again WF already knows I've filed BK.. I've read FINRA does not refuse individuals who filed BK from taking the exam... it is up to the individual company/brokers.

Anyone have any knowledge or experience with this predicament? How does BOA, Chase, Citi.. handles these kinds of matters.?

Bankruptcy itself doesn't preclude you from having a series 7. It will be a company decision.

Hi Jackie,

I also am a WF employee and I am filing 2 debts to discharge with WF. Did you inform them that you were filing some of their debts or just do it? Also did you stay employeed after bankruptcy?
