Direct Deposits of Child Tax Credits: Exemption from Creditor Process under Virginia Law (July 2021)
Credit unions are reminded that child tax credit payments made by direct deposit are exempt from the creditor process under Va. Code §34-28.3. In particular, the Virginia law provides an exemption for any “emergency relief payment” made in accordance with the CARES Act “and any future payments or rebates provided directly to individuals for economic relief or stimulus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
ALERT TO ALL CREDIT UNIONS: Emergency Relief Payments and Exemption From the Creditor Process (April 2021)
A Virginia law pertaining to the exemption from creditors of federal “emergency relief payments” under the Covid-19 federal relief legislation (“CARES Act”) was amended by the Governor on March 31, 2021. The General Assembly approved those amendments last week (April 7). This alert is to remind our members of certain requirements if your credit union receives notice, either from the payment itself or from the account holder, that certain funds in an account represent pandemic-related emergency relief payments from the federal government under legislation passed by the US Congress.
U.S. Supreme Court Rules that Mere Retention of Property Does Not Violate Automatic Stay (March 2021)
The United States Supreme Court recently held that a creditor did not violate the automatic stay by refusing the turn-over property of debtors who filed for bankruptcy. The case, City of Chicago v. Fulton, 592 U.S. ___ (2021), is generally seen as favorable to creditors holding property of debtors who seek bankruptcy protection.
