Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
Here she would not pay US income taxes on pension paid to her out of country.She may owe taxes there but not here.If there are any withheld she can file to get those returned.The feds here could sue here and get judgment and try to withhold form your pension .Not sure they would do that but its possible and this is an exception to the garnishment , the feds can seek payment from such funds.
I would have her bank in the Philippines it makes it harder to collect.Thats the best you can do here.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
