This bankruptcy stuff is hard to accept that's for sure! Last month I was to receive a Profit Sharing check from GM for the first time in my career, and TWO days before the check arrived I got a letter telling me to turn it all over to the Trustee. We gave up our yearly 3% raise (which the Trustee would not of been entitled to) for that Profit Sharing provision. It was painful to send in that $7000. As far as this 4 years of $2500 a year goes, I think I would rather not send it to them and file three years of amended tax returns after my bankruptcy is discharged. Then I can give the money to my son to help with his burdensome student loans.
