we have received our confirmation letter for ch 13 bankcrupcy. we recently had property damage and filed a claim with our homeowners to help with the repairs ,we have received ins money. Since we have received confirmation do we turn this info in to the trustee? we did not file on our home
You should report this to your attorney. If you don't have one, you should report it to the trustee and tell the trustee why you have this money and that it is a result of a post petition property damage claim. I suspect the trustee will allow you to keep it to make the necessary repairs.

If you did not file on your home, that is a serious error that could be considered to be a CRIME! Sure would have helped had you told us whether the damage occurred BEFORE or AFTER you filed bankruptcy. Urge you to get experienced representation so you don't continue to shoot yourself. Hope this perspective helps!
