Is My Life Insurance Protected During Bankruptcy?

Life insurance policies are important assets that many people invest in at some point in their lives. Life insurance policies can provide a financial safety net for you and your family to prevent a loved one’s passing from becoming a financial burden. If you are considering filing bankruptcy, it is important to tell your bankruptcy attorney about any life insurance policies you have and to know whether those policies are term or whole policies.

Life Insurance is an Exemptible Asset in Bankruptcy

Many assets, including the majority of life insurance policies are exemptible assets that can be fully protected in bankruptcy, but they must be disclosed to your bankruptcy attorney in order to be protected. If your policy is a whole life insurance policy with cash value, it is helpful to know that value when you speak with a bankruptcy attorney in order to ensure it will be fully protected through your bankruptcy. You have already made the decision to improve your and your family’s financial situation if you are considering bankruptcy. If you don’t already have life insurance, investing in it can be another wise financial decision you can make after your bankruptcy is discharged.
