Pensions may not be garnisheed, but they are included as part of your income if you file an assignment in bankruptcy. That means that no one can force you to make your payments, but the amount of your pension will affect how much you are required to pay if you file bankruptcy.

If you think you need to file, use the links on th side of the page to find a trustee near you to discuss this in detail before you commit to anything.
