About Administrative Wage Garnishment & Student Loans
If you defaulted on your student loans, the Department of Education can collect past-due amounts via an administrative wage garnishment (AWG), which allows the government to garnish your paycheck without obtaining a court order first.
The government must give you written notification of the proposed garnishment and an opportunity to challenge the AWG. You typically must request a hearing within 30 days of receipt of the notice. If you fail to do so, the garnishment may proceed, but it can be halted if you are successful at your hearing.
If an AWG has already begun and no legal defenses apply, then by entering into a rehabilitation agreement and making five rehabilitation payments, the garnishment will be suspended.
