A few minutes please as I look into this.
If a collector tries to garnish money in your account, your bank must look at your account history to see if you received any Social Security or VA benefits by direct deposit in the last 2 months. The bank must protect 2 months’ worth of benefits from garnishment and let you use that money. If your account has more than 2 months’ worth of benefits, your bank can freeze the extra money so it is subject to garnishment.
Hopefully the garnishment issue was resolved and the above information was helpful.
