Can collection agencies garnish social security?

Can collection agencies garnish social security benefits? I am receiving them since last 2 years due to disability. I had a credit card debt back in 2009. I have not made any payments on it in the last 2 years. Now a CA is calling me regarding that debt. They threatened to garnish my social security benefits if I am not able to pay any money to them. What to do.

Whoever the debtor is you may want to let them know that the person receives only SS. I\'m sure you have documentation to prove this, as well.


A collection agency cannot garnish your social security benefits. All social security benefits are exempt from any type of garnishment.
