, Barton Goth GCO Bankruptcy Trustees said:

Typically during a bankruptcy any refunds for the year of bankruptcy (both pre and post) are assigned over to the trustee and used for the general benefit of creditors. So things are not dependent on the creditors making a claim to them, things are dependent on what was agreed upon with your trustee.

As a result you would be best to either review your original documentation or discuss this directly with your trustee.
