I was discharged from the military in 2008 and I had a balance of 5,000 on my Military Star Card. I asked to stop the interest from accumulating and now they are garnishing my Social Security while still taking out for interest.
Is there anything I can do to at least tell them to stop adding interest while I try to pay off the balance? I have talked to my other creditors and settled with them, but I am having such a hard time with Military Star.
It’s like I am only paying the interest and not the balance. Any help would be great :-)
Unfortunately the Military Star credit card which is issued through the military exchange services is considered to be a government debt and is one of the few debts that can garnish your social security benefits.
If you want to stop the garnishment then you might just have to look at bankruptcy. You can click here to find a local bankruptcy attorney and go talk with them about your specific situation.
