Protecting Your Pension and Retirement Plans

The Bankruptcy Code provides for many exemptions and protections for debtors (people who file bankruptcy). One of these protections is designed to specifically guard against your qualified retirement plans being taken from you. At Cohen & DePaul, we have an extensive understanding of all areas of bankruptcy, including:


Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)

In bankruptcy, the Supreme Court has ruled that all ERISA plans and 401(k) plans are protected from being seized during a bankruptcy proceeding. It is critical to speak with a retirement protection lawyer regarding your assets if you are experiencing a financial hardship. Many individuals will take money out of their retirement to pay bills when they should not be doing so.

We will analyze your financial statements and lay out a plan that works to best achieve your goals.
