If you go bankrupt can the Trustee get at your pension? Well if you are over 55 (or even 52) then they might be able to. Or on the other hand they might not. An unsatisfactory state of affairs, brought about by two contradictory decisions of High Court judges – Raithatha v Williamson or Horton v Henry.
Well there should be an answer soon as Horton v Henry is going to appeal in the Court of Appeal and is due to be heard on 26/27 January 2016. No doubt they will take a few weeks to bring out the decision, but it isn’t too long to wait now.
See my earlier piece for more details.
