Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.
If your savings are in a 401(k) account, they should be protected from all forms of creditor judgments, including bankruptcy.
Thus, your creditors should not be able to access those accounts and use the money to pay other debts. Also, the money in your 401(k) accounts should not be liquidated or subject to the claims of any creditors - - even if the creditor is also the administrator of your 401(k) - - in bankruptcy.
