What is the process that Sonic Payday takes to assign a wage assignment? Will someone notify me that this is being done or will it just be done? Also does anyone have a sample letter revoking the wage assignment?

Thanks
Kathy




Sonic payday states about the possibilities of wage assignment in the loan agreement. When you have signed this paper, you have agreed to their terms and conditions if you default in making payment to them.

In these voluntary wage assignments, your employer will be demanded a portion of your weekly wages until the existing debt gets paid off. The whole process does not require any backing from the court. Those creditors who issue a valid wage assignment does not have to obtain a court judgment before your employer is notified.

A wage assignment is termed legal if it fulfils the following requirements:
  • Wage assignment should be served on a separate piece of paper and should not be a part of the contract.

  • You need to sign this paper in person at the time of the agreement with your social security number, your name, the amount of the debt, the rate of interest, and the date when payments are due.

  • A copy of this agreement should be available to you also.

  • Wage assignment should be clearly written at the top of this document.

  • It should be served to your employer in the proper way showing the number of days you have defaulted in making payments. A copy of the wage assignment should be included along with it.

  • The notice to the employer should be sent only after a notice about it has been sent to you. You should receive this notice 20 days before your employer receives it.

  • This agreement should keep in view the statutes of limitations in your state.

  • The assignment is valid for 3 years. But in between, if you have changed your employer, then it is valid for 2 years.

  • The wages assigned should not exceed the allowed amount under the wage deduction act

  • You cannot have wage assignment if you are earning wages from the State or local government or a school district.

Wage assignment should have the following points clearly stated and should meet the required revocation language. Otherwise it will be a violation of the federal and state laws. If the wage assignment is not meeting the following legal requirement, you need to send a letter to the creditor that you are revoking it.

While you are sending your revocation to the lender, you can also file a "notice of defense" with your employer and send this copy through certified mail. Your employer will be informed about your actions and he won't deduct any of your wages while you have revoked this assignment.

I am trying to locate a perfect wage assignment letter for you in the meantime.

Following letter can be used for revoking a wage assignment.

The date
Your name and address
The name and address of the creditor
Your account number with the creditor

Dear Sir or Madam,

I hereby revoke your right to use the wage assignment I signed on (The date you signed the wage assignment agreement). You no longer have my permission to use this wage assignment.

Sincerely,
Your signature

Also, since you didn't sign the wage assignment in person, it is automatically void. Most of the wage assignments they have, aren't even signed and faxed back to them. They just use your SSN# as proof you took out the loan. This will not work.

Are you sure if you didn't sign in person, it is not legally binding?

Hi Summer,

Welcome to the forums.

A legal wage assignment has to be signed in person before the creditors can take any action. Other points to be specified in a legal wage assignment have been mentioned at the above post.

If you have been served a wage assignment that has been generated from a computer, you have the federal rights to revoke it.

I am trying to work out a payment plan with them but they went ahead and sent an email to someone in my payroll dept. asking to verify my ssn# (which they included in the email) and notifying them that I owe money. Isn't this illegal. How can I get them to leave me alone at work?

Hi Summer

Does the SSN# that has been provided to your payroll dept. matches with your one? Most of the companies use the SSN# to prove that you took the loan and are seeking further actions.

Even if it is a voluntary wage assignment, it should be complied with legal requirements. You have the right to revoke it and inform about this action to your payroll dept.

Welcome to the forums. Yes, technically it is illegal for them to use the wage assignment with a digital signature on it. They claim that the verbal agreement over the phone is all they need, however they only submit the wage assignment to your employer. Wage assignments also have to be signed in person, along with a witness. Sonic does not follow any of the wage assignment laws.

I would like to confront them with this issue. Do I put it in writting. they are claiming they need an answer today. They also deposited 400.00 that they should not have and when I told them about it they told me they could not reverse it and I would need to pay the fee. So I owe them for 2 loans because they did not pay atttention of the first loan that it had cleared the bank. I did do a re-loan but they never deposited it until the 1st one cleared. Is that just my tough luck??? AHHHHH
