No applicable statute, Administrative Code provision or case law exists; Indiana’s Department of Insurance indicates that the common practice is for insurer to reimburse insured on pro rata basis based on percentage recovered


(Note: ALL states allow garnishment for child support, alimony, taxes and federal student loans)

The maximum part of an individual’s aggregate disposable earnings for the work week that is subject to garnishment in Indiana is the lesser of: 1. 25% of the disposable earnings or 2. The amount of the disposable earnings that exceed 30 times the federal minimum hourly wage; A wage garnishment can be obtained after interrogatories are served and completed and after a motion for proceeding supplemental is heard. Garnishments filed in Claims Court cases require a filing fee of approximately $15.00. Indiana now recognizes Voluntary Wage Assignments, which are to be signed by the debtor and the creditor, or the creditor’s attorney, and submitted to the employer
