Understanding Garnishments & Levies

Understanding Garnishments & Levies

Who Should Participate

Tellers, lenders, personal bankers, operations personnel, and managers.

Make your attendance count towards your continuing professional education credits! The MBA will provide a certificate of attendance that you may submit to the appropriate advisory board.


This seminar is designed to answer the “how-to’s” of garnishments and levies. It will provide attendees with methods of protecting your bank’s interest when responding to these documents. Once you know how to respond correctly and promptly, you will alleviate serious problems in paperwork and customer service. It is the intent of the program to give detailed information to successfully handle these matters.

Topics include:

  • Overview of laws: attachment, garnishment, execution, and tax liens and levies
  • Procedure for handling garnishments, writs and levies
    • Forms
    • Deadlines
    • How to handle objections
  • Priority
  • Special cases: safe deposit boxes, confidentiality, custodial accounts, and multiparty accounts
At the end of the seminar there will be a Q & A session on garnishments and levies with the instructor and the MBA’s Associate Counsel.  Come prepared with questions to ask!
