Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you. My condolences for your loss.
Social security is, as a general rule, exempt from commercial creditor claims. If all you have is socil security then you are"judgment proof", meaning that even if someone were to get a judgment against you, they would have no way to collect it from you because social security retirement benefits are not subject to garnishment by commercial creditors.
