When financial troubles begin to emerge in someone’s life, they can present a number of challenges.

Is My Retirement Safe in Bankruptcy?
Whether you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 11 bankruptcy 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.

Many people fear that they will lose their entire life’s savings by filing for bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is not meant to be a punishment; it’s supposed to be an opportunity for people to get started on a fresh path. Before making a decision about bankruptcy, it is important to become educated about your options. I am a highly experienced New Jersey bankruptcy lawyer, and my entire practice is dedicated to helping people find debt relief. I take a proactive and interactive approach to working with my clients at all times.
