This session will explain your responsibilities regarding processing federal government reclamations, including steps to limit liability. It will also review the final rule related to the Garnishment of Accounts Containing Federal Benefit Payments, detail which payments are exempt from garnishments, and outline associated financial institution responsibilities.
