Yes, when you file for bankruptcy (or even before if you’ve missed payments) your bank has the right to withdraw funds from your bank account to cover any other debts you may have with them.

One of the first things we suggest people do when they experience financial problems is switch banks to someone that they are not indebted to – this way the bank will not withdraw any funds.
