Debt collectors can take your stimulus check

If you’re in trouble with creditors and are expecting a stimulus check, they can take all or part of your money, says the Indiana Supreme Court. The court declined to stop those kinds of seizures, despite requests from groups like Indiana Legal Services, Prosperity Indiana and the Indiana Institute for Working Families. The decision was made Monday morning. The court did not explain the decision. The previous stimulus payments could not be touched by creditors or debt collectors. Many Hoosiers began getting the new $1,400 payments last week.
