I don't practice in your state but I have practiced Social Security disability law for 35 years. I can tell you your Social Security disability check is exempt from garnishment. However, if that check is deposited in an account with other monies it may lose it's SS identity. If you receive a garnishment, contact a legal aid lawyer in your state immediately.

No. Social security disability benefits are exempt from garnishment, and so are retirement benefits. They can try to garnish, but you have valid defenses.
