My apologies. I thought you said a 5% plan and that you had paid $8,000 over two years. That would result from a $400,000 debt over 5 years. No matter, I'll work with your clarified numbers. At 100%, you would be looking at ≈$750 per month for two years. But, since your inheritance is nearly twice that of the total debt, you may actually be better dismissing the case, and just paying off your creditors with a lump sum. You would still have half of the inheritance to purchase a car. Hope this helps.
