DMS Training Registration

Administrative Wage Garnishment (AWG) Webinar

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

1:00 p.m. (EDT)


The Bureau of the Fiscal Service, Debt Management Services (DMS) will host an Administrative Wage Garnishment (AWG) Webinar session for federal agency employees August 9, 2017. There is no charge for this training.

The webinar is for those who are interested in the process, requirements and policies of the AWG program. AWG is a debt collection tool that allows a federal agency to order a non-federal employer to withhold up to 15 percent of an employee's disposable income to pay a nontax delinquent debt owed to the agency.

All federal agencies are required to participate in AWG through the DMS' Cross-Servicing program. Federal agencies must publish AWG regulations and set up hearing procedures before they are eligible to participate in the AWG program. DMS also offers hearing services on behalf of federal agencies. This workshop will provide an overview of these policies along with other information about the program.

DMS will send out webinar sign-on access and handout information the week of August 7.

For questions, please call Denise Hammond at (202) 874-6810 or e-mail Denise.Hammond@fiscal.treasury.gov.
