If I live in Texas, but my rollover IRA fund is in Massachusetts (Fidelity), for determining applicable non-bankruptcy creditor exemptions, which law applies? Texas or Mass. or something else?

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . The rules of where you live apply - the account's "location" is irrelevant as you have no control over that. So, if you take a rollover and are looking to exempt the property, it would be where you live (or, where you were sued, if that's in a different state).
