Can a disability check be garnish?
Hi,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Are you referring to Social Security Disability payments, or payments from a state or private insurance program? If so, which state? Also, what type of debt is it?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Im talking about a SS disability check and from the state of Georgia.
Social Security disability may only be garnished for debts to the federal government, child support, or alimony. 42 U.S.C. Section 207 and Section 459.
