Its your choice. What amount would they get IF they garnished your wages? More or less? Do they have a judgment for the balance due? IF so, they gave you a choice.

Can a collection agency take your social security in Washington?

No. Social security and social security disability CAN NOT be garnished by a collection agency, BUT the Federal government can garnish it for child support, back taxes, unpaid student loans or any other money for which it is owed. SSI on the other hand CAN NOT be garnished by anyone, not even the Federal government since it is awarded by need. Hope this helps, Lsqud in PA
