Bankruptcy is designed and intended to provide you with a fresh start, not a head start though. There is a limit to the amount of your assets that can be protected when filing for bankruptcy protection. The good news is that money held in qualified retirement accounts, ERISA accounts, is 100% protected. It is admirable when a client has taken out a loan from their retirement account to pay a debt or living expenses. The sad truth is that they are still seeking to file bankruptcy given that their debts are still too much for them to handle. So the moral to the story is to not take a loan against a retirement account that can be completely protected when filing for bankruptcy protection.
