In Virginia, the homestead exemption is used to protect liquid assets such as savings, wages, tax refunds, cash-surrender life insurance value, and other equity in property such as a house.

In order to extend the protection of the homestead exemption to these properties you must properly file a legally-valid homestead deed in the correct jurisdiction by the mandatory deadline.
