Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

In what state is the collection process being pursued in?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


Thank you for your patience, Pam.


Under Connecticut laws, disability payments, whether private or from social security, are considered to be exempt from collections. The creditor, even if he obtains a judgment, cannot pursue your social security disability funds as a means of covering the judgment award. In this case you can luckily breathe a little bit easier.


Good luck!
