Hi - thanks for looking me up again!
It is possible for VSI payments to be garnished perDepartment of Defense Financial management Regulation Vol 7C § 010303.
Let me see if I can get you some additional information.
Here's a link you can read about garnishments: http://www.va.gov/finance/docs/VA-FinancialPolicyVolumeXIIChapter01F.pdf. It appears that the only real garnishments allowed would be if you owed the US Treasury/IRS money.
ok, I will review it. Thanks for the link
I'm still looking for some additional information as well. Bear with me.....
Here's a link to the federal statute, 31 USC § 3720D - Garnishment: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/31/3720D
It says that the debt would be due to the US, so a private creditor should not have access to this money.
Thanks. Have a nice day
Thus, I don'
sorry, thought you were done
Thus, I don't think that they'd have the ability to seize or garnish these funds.
No problem - - just making a fleeting comment! :)
