Normally, No. Banks and other financial creditors can't touch your Social Security benefits, but when the government is collecting on a debt, those funds are fair game. The federal government can garnish your benefits for repayment of several types of debts, including federal income taxes, federal student loans, child support and alimony, non-tax debt owed to other federal agencies, defaulted federal home loans and certain civil penalties. Supplemental Security Income cannot be garnished under any circumstance.
