I need clarification on an Insolvency Worksheet. Interest in retirement accounts? I have 40K total in State Teachers Retirement , it earned 5% in 2012, the year I received the 1099c. I've seen conflicting answers on these sites and my CPA is not even sure. Bottom line..is my asset 40K or 2K? Thanks in advance
