I have a garnishment deduction. How will the transition to biweekly pay affect the amount deducted for my garnishment?

If the garnishment deduction is calculated as a percentage of your earnings, a deduction will occur each pay period, up to the maximum deduction allowed based on federal and state regulations.

For example, if your garnishment deduction is 25%, that amount will be deducted each payday. If the garnishment deduction is a fixed flat dollar amount, the amount will be recalculated to a biweekly amount. That calculation is then divided into two payments. For example, a monthly $250.00 garnishment payment will become $125.00, deducted against each biweekly paycheck.
