Is My Retirement Safe in Bankruptcy?

Whether you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 11 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your retirement accounts are protected from creditors. This includes ERISA qualified accounts, pensions, 401(k) accounts, IRA savings accounts and more.

One of the biggest mistakes I see people make before filing bankruptcy is early withdrawal of retirement accounts. By withdrawing retirement accounts, people frequently think they are saving their assets. Unfortunately, this can result in serious repercussions, including tax penalties.
