Inslee extends order suspending some methods of debt collection through May 27

UPDATED: Fri., May 22, 2020

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee on Friday extended his proclamation protecting consumers from debt collection practices through May 27.

Inslee extended the temporary suspensions on state laws allowing creditors to use additional collection methods to get the money owed to them. This includes bank account and wage garnishments.

The extended proclamation, originally made in April 14, also waives the accumulation or increase of interest on consumer debt judgments while it’s in effect.

This proclamation is intended to protect consumer assets, including federal stimulus checks from consumer debt collections, according to a statement from the Office of the Governor.
