Types of Adjudication: 
Comments/Notes on Adjudication Type(s): 
Unclear from NGIC regulations whether salary offset and administrative wage garnishments are heard by ALJs generally, on occasion, or not at all. For salary offsets, NGIC regulations (based on Treasury regulations) provide that the hearing official shall be an individual who does not work for NGIC, but does not appear to mandate ALJs (though most agencies do use ALJs). (See 25 CFR 513.31(b)(8)). For administrative wage garnishment, Treasury regulations (which are incorporated by NGIC regulations), the hearing official "may be any qualified individual, as determined by the agency head, including an administrative law judge." (See 25 CFR 513.40; 31 CFR 285.11(f)(6)).
