LEGAL TIP OF THE WEEK
IS SOCIAL SECURITY SAFE FROM A COLLECTOR’S HANDS?
Not having enough money every month to pay the bills is stressful. Debt collectors start calling and harassing pretty quickly after missing a payment, adding to your stress. If you are on a fixed budget, having any amount of your wages or bank account garnished will cause a severe hardship. But what if your funds are solely social security benefits? Are those subject to garnishment? The short answer is no, unless you owe money to the government. If you are being garnished or sued for past due debts, take immediate action to protect your bottom line. For help, give our office a call for general information and tips on what you can do next.
