Pension after Bankruptcy

My partner informed the Insolvency Service of Ireland of his pensions whilst going through bankruptcy, one of which was encashed by the OA. Now over 2 years after discharge, the asignee is requiring further information regarding the other pension.Is he still legally required to give the official assignee this information - as he had already given information requested in his statement of affairs (during bankruptcy). The said pension they are enquiring about has been moved to another provider since his discharge. We would have thought that this was okay as he had never been asked to encash that pension. Where does he stand? Surely, discharged means that they leave him alone now???? Any advice appreciated.

In the UK, I know from a family member's situation, that you will keep the capital in the pension, but not any payments/dividends etc. during the bankruptcy period. You may have to put work in to prove this as it's quite a complex legal point - our family member did as they had legal training - but in the long run it proved an important fight to win. It may well be different in Ireland.
