Georgia has enacted legislation (Senate Bill 443) that limits the maximum garnishment for private student loans. Senate Bill 443 takes effect January 1, 2021.

Effective January 1, 2021, the maximum portion of disposable earnings that is subject to garnishment cannot exceed the lesser of:

  • Twenty-five percent of the defendant's disposable earnings for that week or, if the judgment upon which the garnishment is based arose from a private student loan, then 15 percent of the defendant's disposable earnings for that week; or
  • The amount by which the defendant's disposable earnings for that week exceed $217.50.


Compliance Recommendations:

Georgia employers should review garnishment procedures to ensure compliance with Senate Bill 443. Please contact your dedicated service professional with any questions.
