Can a debt collector garnish my stimulus check too? My wages were being garnished due to non-payment of debt. I am in Alabama. If yes, is there any way to stop it?

Debt collectors can't garnish your stimulus check under normal circumstances. However, they can garnish your stimulus check for tax debt, federal student loan debt, child support, bank debts, etc. Do you have these kinds of debts? Do you have judgments against you?

Hi Sebra! Yes, your stimulus check can be garnished by the debt collectors. But the collectors need to have a valid judgment against you to garnish your wages.
But why are you thinking about wage garnishment? You can try to settle your debts with your creditors before they proceed to sue you. Call 800-DEBT-913 for immediate debt help!
