Processing of Garnishment Refunds


To provide information regarding a change in the processing of garnishment refunds.

Affected Employees

Employees who have had a garnishment satisfied and are due a refund as identified by a Court Officer.

Effective Date



There is a change in the way employees who are due garnishment refunds will receive the money.  Employees will no longer receive a separate check mailed to their home, but will have the refund included in their paycheck.

OSC Actions

OSC will now process garnishment refunds for employees directly through PayServ.  The refunds will be included in the employee’s regular check and will display on the paycheck stub and direct deposit advice statement. Refunds are not subject to taxes or deductions and will not be charged to the agencies appropriations.

Agency Actions

Inquiring employees should be notified that garnishment refunds will be included in their regular paycheck.
