Governor Brown Protects Stimulus Payments from Bill Collectors

Great News! Oregon's Governor Kate Brown signed Executive Order 20-18 protecting stimulus payments from bill collectors. This provision is on page four of her Order:
She added them to the list of other exempt payments, such as social security, unemployment or retirement payments, that remain exempt even when deposited in your bank account. This means that you don't need to worry about running down to the bank to get the money out as soon as it is deposited or about your account being targeted by collection agencies or law firms.
Thank you Gov. Brown for making sure this money stays available to the families who really need it to try to survive this crisis.
