Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Why do you have to make these payments? Are they required under a specific section of the insolvency act or as a personal guarantee?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They are part directors loans paid by the company and also as a personal guarantee on a bank loan to the company

Hi, Thank you. If you were made bankrupt potentially any excessive pension contributions could be accesses, other wise whether you can take a lump or not depends on the terms of the pension and your age. Is there a reasons why you are negotiating with the administrators? I would be negotiating with the bank directly - also if you believe the administrators do not actually have the funds to sue, I would certainly not volunteer any information about your pension.
