Don’t Touch Retirement Accounts In Bankruptcy

When facing unmanageable debt, people are willing to do almost anything to pay their bills, including cashing in their retirement savings. Don’t make that mistake. Most retirement assets are exempt, meaning they cannot be taken from you in bankruptcy.

If you are struggling to keep up with your bills, talk to a bankruptcy lawyer before making a decision that can affect your future. With decades of experience, Levitt & Slafkes, P.C., in Maplewood, New Jersey, has guided hundreds of clients in bankruptcy-related cases. Our attorneys provide valuable insight and are skilled negotiators.

Eliminating Your Debt Does Not Require Sacrificing Retirement

All qualified retirement accounts, including 401(k)s, pension plans, IRAs and others, are protected under the law. Retirement funds cannot be seized to repay creditors in Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. Nor can they be seized in Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

When you hire our firm, we work closely with you to develop a debt relief plan that provides the fresh start you need without compromising your future.
