Garnishment and Social Security Benefits
Generally, Social Security Disability benefits may be garnished for certain debts, such as child support or spousal support obligations, unpaid federal taxes or debts to federal agencies, including Social Security. However, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits may NOT be garnished. If you are having a problem with garnishment of your disability benefits, contact your local Social Security office. If you have questions about disability, SSDI or SSI benefits, contact Philip H. Garrow, Attorney for help with your case.
