Collection agency garnish pension?
Asked Dec 30, 2007, 08:06 PM
I am retired & get social security & a pension that is direct deposite in a joint account. My pension is funded by a government agency called: P.B.G.C. ( pension benefits guarantee corp.) They took over my pension when Bethlehem Steel went bankrupt) I owe $3,000.00 for several years to some collection agency... The loan was originally with Sears, but they sold it and it has been sold several times in the past few years. I want to know: If they should sue me for the money, can my federal funded pension be garnished? I know they cant touch my social security.. I own nothing .& the 30 year old mobile home I live in is in my wife & my name... I live in Pennsylvania and someone told me that they cant touch my pension, in this state but I need to know as that is all they could possible go after... Thanks
