Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the process to garnish the wages of a civilian federal employee for a commercial debt?
    The creditor must serve garnishment documents on DFAS at the address or fax number below.

    Garnishment Law Directorate-HGA

    Cleveland OH 44199-8002
    Fax: 877-622-5930

    The garnishment must direct the employing agency to withhold money from the employee's wages and pay them to either the creditor or the court. State law directs the garnishment process. For questions regarding state law, we recommend that you consult a private attorney.
