    Lawyers agree

    Answered . As Attorney Bunce implied, if the annuity was exempt at the time of the petition, you can probably liquidate part of it during the Chapter 13 case.

    The best way to be sure, is to contact the attorney who handled your Chapter 13 and find out the attitude of the Chapter 13 trustee about such matters, and to review your Schedule C for the exemption that should exist.

    Of course, if you handled this case on your own, you are probably already in trouble since you are asking this question. In which case, I would urge you to engage a competent Chapter 13 attorney in your area pronto to review your pleadings, fix the errors, and answer this question.

    Good luck.
