Case of the Week: 3/10/06

County: Taylor
Age: 74

Our client received a letter from a collector regarding her student loan from 20 years ago. My client had limited information regarding the loan. I contacted the collection company and learned that the loan is federally insured. I explained to our client that although her Social Security benefits may be garnished, she can exempt up to $750 per month from garnishment. Since my client receives $700 per month, she can exempt the entire amount.
