Garnishing Social Security Payments
Taking SSDI benefits
Child support payments can be taken out of Social Security benefits. So can alimony, back taxes and restitution ordered by a court.
If you are facing this situation, please phone Axsmith Law LLC at (202) 285-5415 right now.
Phoning, or even visiting, the Social Security Administration will not stop people from taking this money from you. You have to go to the government agency who ordered the garnishment in the first place.
According to the Social Security Administration:
If your Social Security benefits are to be garnished to pay off non-tax debts, you will be notified by the Treasury Department – not the SSA. According to the SSA, “We have no control over this reduction of Social Security benefits, and there is no appeal available under the Social Security Act.
It’s not much of a comfort.
If you have wage garnishment, debt relief, credit card debt problems, or need help, phone Axsmith Law LLC at (202) 285-5415.
