Under federal law, most retirement assets are exempt from being part of the debtor’s bankruptcy estate and are therefore protected. However, federal law allows the states to determine whether HSA accounts are exempt from creditors. In addition, federal law allows states to opt out of the specified federal exemptions. Be sure to check with your legal counsel and tax accountant to see how you are affected.
