Thanks for the chance to assist on this matter. I am an attorney with over 12 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question

Depends...who is the creditor? Is it the Federal Government or is it someone else?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

It is wallmart and I have never had an account with them

Expert:  P. Simmons replied 1 year ago.
Non issue then

VA disability is exempt from garnishment. See Title 38 US Code, Section 5301. This law prohibits garnishment of VA compensation/pension.

SO they can not touch the money...just make sure you keep it in a separate bank account an no other money is deposited to that account.
