Yes, if file for bankruptcy and inherit money it is all paid directly to your trustee. The bankruptcy legislation then requires that it be used to pay your trustee’s administration costs, your creditors in full (plus 5% interest) a small levy that goes to the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy ( a division of the federal government). Then if there is anything left it will be turned back over to you.
