I live in Georgia, if I roll my old 401k to an IRA, is the IRA still protected from creditors in non-bankruptcy events/proceedings? For example if someone tries to sue me in civil court sometime down the road. My understanding is that a Rollover IRA is still protected by Federal law from creditors in bankruptcy events, but state law determines the protection in "non-bankruptcy" events. I would like to how much, if any, protection is provided by Georgia state law from creditors in "non-bankruptcy" events? Thank you kindly for any help!
