What Is A Bank Levy Or Frozen Bank Account?

A frozen bank account, also known as a restrained account, is one where withdrawals are blocked due to a creditor's claim. This means that while you can deposit funds, you cannot withdraw any, leaving you in a financial bind.

In Pennsylvania, the law permits the levy of a bank account under Section 9607 of Title 13 in the Commercial Code, but this can only happen following a court judgment.

Common Reasons Behind a Frozen Bank Account

In Philadelphia, a frozen bank account typically indicates that a creditor has won a judgment against you or a joint account holder. Creditors use this tactic to compel debt repayment by restricting access to your funds.

Protection for Your Funds in Pennsylvania

The state provides a $300 statutory exemption from account levies as outlined in 42 Pa. C.S.A. Section 8123. Assets held jointly by spouses are also protected from such levies. Additionally, banks are required to inform creditors about recurring electronic deposits into the account—like wages, Social Security benefits, and disability payments—which may be protected from levy if the account's balance is under $10,000.
