Protecting 401(k) and Retirement Accounts in Bankruptcy

Depending on your age and how long you have worked, your 401K could have upwards of hundreds of thousands of dollars in it. And, if you are contemplating bankruptcy, you may be worried about losing your investments to your creditors. The Law Office of Eric K. Fox can reassure you; you do not have to worry about losing your retirement funds in bankruptcy. Your 401K monies are exempt assets — they cannot be used to repay your creditors.

Protect Your Retirement Funds From Creditors. Call Today.

If you would like to learn options to protect 401K and retirement accounts, call our Tennessee law firm to speak with a bankruptcy attorney in a free initial consultation. We can be reached toll free at 888-808-7604 or locally at 615-338-5291.

I Worked Hard for My Money, and I Want to Keep It. Can I?

Bankruptcy law is on your side, and so is our law firm. The bankruptcy code will protect your retirement account. Whether you file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your 401K is safe, no matter how much or how little money you have in there.

Should I Use My Retirement Fund to Pay Creditors?

No, you shouldn't. It may seem tempting to withdraw money prematurely to pay creditors. However, you will pay taxes and penalties if you withdraw the money. And, you will have less money in your retirement account for your future. Our attorney advises you to look at the entire picture of your life now and after bankruptcy.
