Question: If I am receiving Social Security income, can my creditors get a hold of it?
No. In general, your Social Security income is protected from creditors. It may be even easier to protect such income if you have your checks deposited directly into your bank account. Social Security income can, however, be garnished for court-ordered child support, alimony or unpaid federal taxes.
