Cash collateral

Cash collateral is cash, negotiable instruments, documents of title, securities, deposit accounts, and other cash equivalents in which a bankrupt estate and its creditors have an interest. In the absence of a court order to the contrary, cash collateral must be segregated from other assets. When the court orders that cash collateral can be used, creditors are typically protected with new liens on other debtor assets, to the extent that the debtor’s use of the cash collateral will otherwise decrease the value of the collateral held by creditors.
