I have a BIL that died and was in a Chapter 13. He had life

This answer was rated:

I have a BIL that died and was in a Chapter 13. He had life insurance that is to go to his father as the beneficiary and a pension fund that goes to him as well, do we have to pay off the Chapter 13, or can we let it get dismissed with them coming after a 86 year old man?

Hello,


Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.


Consider allowing the Chapter 13 to be dismissed.



The life insurance and the pension pass by operation of law to the beneficiary and are not subject to the claims of creditors.


I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.


Best wishes for a successful outcome. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to submit them to me directly.


Thank you,
