Tell your U.S. senators: Americans' stimulus payments should be protected from debt collectors

Through its Economic Impact Payments, the CARES Act provided crucial financial relief to millions of American families struggling to make ends meet in the face of the coronavirus crisis.

But unfortunately, this money is still not adequately protected from predatory debt collectors. While banks and even many debt collectors and debt buyers believe that the payments should be exempt from garnishment orders, some creditors have continued to attempt to garnish and freeze bank accounts.

That's why we're calling on Congress to pass S.3841, which will exempt Economic Impact Payments from court-ordered garnishments to pay creditors. Add your name today.
