Customer Question

how do i fight dhs ,,they have put a hold on my wife's and my money market account's.
i have child support taken from my paycheck every week .i have arrears and set up a payment plan with dhs and it has been applied to my monthly payment ..and i have been making these payments for the last five yrs ..i was recently off due to back surgery, i called dhs and advised them of this and that I could be off up to 6 months, they said that the missed payments would be added to the arrears. i returned to work after 3 months and deductions for the child support have picked up.what do we to stop them from taking what we have worked so hard to save ,,and there was a great deal of that savings that was a gift to my wife from her grand father ,,

the only notification we received of this was a call from our Financial Adviser, we have not contributed to this account since February due to the reduced income while on STD and since I have been back to work we are playing catch up. we have called the first of every month to notify them of whether or not we could make the contribution on the 7th. this month we cannot but when she tried to cancel the withdrawal, she couldn't due to the hold.

Hi again,

Thanks for writing back so promptly.

Unfortunately, without knowing those details, nothing can be said, meaning the appropriate course of action depends upon know those relevant details.

Would you be interested in finding out tomorrow (Monday) and writing back? If so, I would be glad to continue our conversation then.

Please just let me know what you prefer.
