Will I lose my retirement savings in bankruptcy?

Our Professional Answer

Under the federal bankruptcy exemptions and under all state bankruptcy exemptions, qualified retirement funds are completely exempt. IRAs, 401(k)s, qualified retirement plans. These are all exempt under the bankruptcy code and state law. The idea is, the government does not want you to become impoverished because of the filing of bankruptcy in your old age.
