A garnishment is an order that directs the University to withhold money from your paycheck, and to forward that money to the court or garnishing agency for payment of a debt you owe. Your wages can be garnished because of debts of federal, state and county taxes, alimony or child support. There are two ways you will know that there are garnishments to your paycheck. First, you will receive notice from the agency or court that your wages will be garnished. Secondly, you will be able to see the garnishments itemized on your paycheck.

Garnishments that may appear on the “deductions” portion of your paycheck include:

  • Child Support – The Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) will send the University an order if you have had a new child support order filed or a change to a current order.
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy – This type of garnishment stops all creditors that are listed in your filing agreement with the Chapter 13 Trustees from garnishing your checks (stops creditor garnishment only).
  • Creditor Garnishment – Any Court, Civil Court or Common Pleas Courts can require the University to garnish your paycheck as a result of a court judgment.
  • Tax Levies – There are three types of tax levies: federal, state and county. These can include taxes owed for property tax, income tax etc. If you are married, the filing may be made on whichever person is employed by the University.
  • Student Loan – Certain types of student loans qualify for garnishment from your paycheck if you are in default on your student loan.
  • State Health Plan – The plan is required by North Carolina state law to recover overpaid or erroneously paid state funds.
