Scheme Nickname: 
Federal Employee Debt Collection

The NCUA may initiate proceedings to collect a debt owed to the NCUA by federal employees or to other agencies by NCUA employees, either by administrative offset or salary offset. The debtor may request review of NCUA's determination of the existence or amount of the debt via written request; review is based on the written record unless an oral hearing is required by 12 CFR 797.7(d), 797.20(b). The review of written record or oral hearing shall be conducted by a hearing official, arranged either by the NCUA or in cooperation with another agency. The hearing official renders a final written decision based on the documentary evidence and oral hearing (if one was held).
