Hi Billy

SSDI benefits can be garnished only if you owe taxes, have child support obligations or have alimony to pay. Apart from that your SSDi benefits will not be garnished for any other reason.

On the other hand your VA benefits can be garnished if you have waived all or part of your retired pay to receive this compensation. Other benefits like pension received due to any service related disability or death may not be garnished.

Subject: ssdi & child support

Husband's ssdi & my ssdi checks were seized in the full amounts and taken by child support without notification. He does not owe this money since child did not live with mother at the time of order. We live in Florida..support order is from Mass. no attorney will take our case and now we are negative $19,000 in our ckg account and mortgage and all bills paid are bouncing. We need help before we become homeless.

Well unfortunately your ssdi can be garnished for child support. And I have read somewhere on here that they can take as much as 65% and maybe 85% of your income. And as far as the child not living with the mother at the time. Is something you need to check with the court about. Because if your husband is behind that much it couldn't have been paying the child support as he was ordered to pay. So it really depends on how the order is written up. I may just be the back time he owes and that wouldn't affect where the child was living he still owes the money.

This is true. Garnishment of any income is possible when it involves child support of taxes. I believe the atty may not be taking your case because regardless of wether the child lived with his or her mother would be an invalid point. Either way someone had to be caring for the child and until the child either turns 18 or graduates (which ever comes first) he would need to pay support. Could the mother have collected any welfare for the child even of the child resided else where? How do you know that the mother is the one receiving the past due money? Please let us know.

Hello Marvin, The government can take what ever they want when it comes to taxes. Since this is back pay I imagine they will take what is owed to them. Everything that has to do with the state or government goes through a system and they can see if money is owed. I have seen people lose their whole income tax returns from taxes, government loans, student loans and child support. The best way to know this for sure is to call them and ask.

Billy Bob. I just went through hell the past 2 years myself. SSDI started and VA applied for. These are two seperate entities, if you are eligible for both, they can't take either of them away. Be happy you got both of them. Neither can be touched. My ex has been receiving 60% for the last few years and does not have to even report it for taxes. By the way, how long did your VA comp take? I just completed C & P and it was very favorable, it is now at the review board. They are considering 100%.

I am getting long term disability through my former employer. I also was awarded SSDI. The long term insurance firm is taking all of my SSDI as per their plan. Is this legal ?

Hi Harry,

Whether or not a Social Security can be garnished, depends on the state laws too. However, generally speaking Social Security cannot be garnished under the Federal Law. Thus, you can check the garnishment laws in your state.

Moreover, can you tell me what is the plan of the long term insurance?

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Aaron

I called Social Security office. The ONLY way a creditor can garnish your Social Security benefits (SS or SSDI) is if you have a bank account. They will take the money out of your bank. So get your money OUT of your bank and have your SS check mailed to you and cash it. Walmart will cash it for several dollars. Some banks will also. You need to find a place to cash your check before you close your bank account! This is what I was told. Am and doing
