Areas of Law / Bankruptcy Debt

I was declared bankrupt in 2011 and discharged in 2012. I’’m being told that the trustee in bankruptcy is entitled to any money or assets I have made. Is this correct?

Your discharge from bankruptcy means you are released from liability to meet the debts that led to your bankruptcy. The trustee will still own any assets or cash that were seized as part of your bankruptcy to meet your debts: being discharged does not mean you can now reclaim your property. Any money you have made or any assets you have bought since 2012 will be your own however.
