injury settlement received after filing bankruptcy
February 20th, 2006 by Questions
I received a cheque from WSIB for a permanent injury to my back that is work related. I was totally unaware that this cheque was coming. Is this cheque to be turned over to the trustee of my bankruptcy or am I able to keep it. The injury claim is not closed and is to be evaluated in one years time. Should I return the cheque and ask for a review of my injury in one years time and accept the cheque then. I don’t want to be dishonest but my wife and her lover did a midnight move and have left me with no possessions and a mountain of debt. The cheque for the back injury would certainly help me get back on my feet.
