I pay for life insurance but it has no cash value...do i need to claim that as exempt on my bankruptcy? If so what exemption do i use? State of missouri bankruptcy
Response: If your life insurance has no cash value, then there is nothing to exempt under Schedule C. However, you must still list it under Schedule B, Personal Property. Generally, you would exempt insurance benefits under Missouri Statutes Sections 377.090, 377.330.
