Absolutely. It being exempt from creditors is a main benefit of qualified retirement accounts. Not "absolutely." Properly established IRAs are protected up to one million dollars, and a bankruptcy court can extend that higher. Any money that you withdraw from an IRA, unless it is all placed in another IRA or a 401(k) or other qualified retirement plan, is not protected.
