First off, they aren't allowed to attach or garnish bank accounts until after a lawsuit has been filed and a judgment rendered.

In addition, both Social Security and retirement funds are exempt from garnishments so if they do attach an account and those are the funds going into it then you should be able to get the court to release it pretty quickly.

In addition, your brother could consider filing bankruptcy. That would wipe out those debts and shouldn't affect his retirement. With his health condition it isn't as important to maintain good credit so this is an option to consider.

Please ask any follow up questions in this thread and please don't issue a rating until we have finished. It looks like switching to this format has resolved the issues.
