Federal "non-bankruptcy" Public Benefits exemptions (available in all states)

Federal Bankruptcy Code §522(d) Public Benefits Exemptions

The Federal Bankruptcy Exemptions are available to you if

  • you haven't lived in any state longer than 180 days for a while, or
  • if your state allows the Federal exemptions as a choice.

Does Alaska allow debtor the option of using the Federal Bankruptcy exemptions instead of state law exemptions?

Yes. Alaska allows residents to use the federal exemptions pursuant to Code § 522(b). If the debtor choses to use the Alaska exemptions, AS § 09.38.055 limits the exemptions available to a debtor filing bankruptcy and residing in Alaska to those within the following statutes: AS §§ 09.38.010, 09.38.015, 09.38.017, 09.38.020, 09.38.025 and 09.38.030.
