For some people who do have sizeable claims and equally sizeable unprotected retirement accounts, an alternative may be to relocate and invest the proceeds in a homestead. When you’re at risk of losing your large retirement account you essentially must choose between three options: 1) Invest the IRA in an international LLC; 2) file bankruptcy; or 3) shift the retirement account proceeds into other exempt assets. This may be a homestead or possibly insurance products. Which is the best option? As with any plan, that depends on the client and the particulars of his case.
Do people with exposed IRAs ever liquidate their exposed IRAs and invest the proceeds in fully homestead protected homes - such as in Texas and Florida?
