The Navy Federal Credit Union stated : ” that your ( my ) savings account is NOT protected from garnishments ” The Navy Federal Credit Union also stated : ” that ONLY your ( me ) veterans compensation in your ( my ) checking account is protected from garnishments ” However, according to federal law 31 CFR 212.3, member ‘s bank ” account ” means an ” account, ” including a ” master account ” or ” sub account, ” at a financial institution and to which an electronic payment may be directly routed.
