Why do I have a garnishment?

A wage garnishment is any legal procedure through which the earnings of any individual are required to be withheld for payment of any debt.  The State of Kanas is the official office of record for garnishments of KU employees.  Garnishments come from different sources for different types of debt, such as bankruptcy or child support.

Garnishments are often ordered by the Kansas Department of Administration Setoff Program.  The Kansas Setoff Program will apply State of Kansas payments or Kansas Income Tax refunds to debts owed to Kansas state agencies, Kansas district courts, Kansas municipalities (cities, counties, unified school districts, townships, fire districts, municipal courts, city or county hospitals, etc.), and/or State of Missouri Income Tax debts.  You can visit the Kansas Setoff Program Debtor Web Inquiry website for more specific garnishment information.

If you are unsure of the garnishing agency, you can also contact the Payroll Office.
