I unfortunately went thru a bankruptcy and got my discharge Feb 2019. During the bankruptcy I got a letter stating that I was part of a settlement from a class action lawsuit against Money Mart. I had no idea what it was about so I sent the letter to my trustee who told me that as it was not to be cashed (it was a voucher) until 3 years after the bankruptcy that it would be mine to use as I pleased. He also said they can’t use it to off set money owing. Yes they were one of my creditors. When I went to cash it out after the 3 years I was told it went to money owing. Is this right? I got a credit check done and it said the money was written off. So I am assuming the debt was written off and they can’t keep the settlement voucher which was sent to me in 2018. Is this correct?

You really should speak with your Trustee about this since this is a very peculiar situation. Your Trustee would be in a better position to answer your question given his familiarity with your file.
