Cleveland, OH asked in Bankruptcy and Collections for Ohio

Q: My job paid me once Unum Ins was sent the doctors info. So when I got my check I saw there was a deduction.

I pay out of my check each week for the short term disability and or income replacement premium. So when my company sent the money the garnishment was already taken out in the sum of 900.00 I hope this helps. I know some states look at employer short disability as income. Not sure where Ohio fall on this.

It took them 6 mos to finally pay me so it was a lump sum. This money would ( the 900.00 garnishment ) definitely would come in handy seeing I was just told my job is closing down permanently.
