New regulations on the topic of protection against account garnishments came into effect as of 1 January 2012. Effective protection against account garnishments is guaranteed only with a garnishment protection account (“P account”): in the event of an ongoing garnishment, social security benefits and child benefit can no longer be withdrawn within two weeks of their receipt or transferred to an alternative account.
Every account holder is entitled to have his existing current account converted into a P account on request. They may operate only one account as a P account, however. If the account is garnished, you receive automatic garnishment protection up to your basic exemption amount, provided that your account has a credit balance sufficient for the purpose.
You can download the form for converting your current account into a P account easily at www.prepaidtrio.de/en in the “Customer service” area under “Form Centre”. Please fill out the application, sign it (page 1) and send it by post to the following address:
Wirecard Bank AG
P.O. Box 310544
The basic exemption amount can be increased if, for example, you are entitled to child benefits or maintenance payments. If this applies to you, please have these details verified by the responsible public authority and send them together with page 1 of the application to the address specified above.
More information on this subject can be found on page 3 of the application.
