A: Since you are writing from Land O'Lakes Florida, mostly Fla. attorneys will see your post and cannot answer your question. Only an Ohio attorney can do so. In any event, Social Security benefits are generally protected from collection actions, even by the IRS. The gentleman needs to schedule a consultation with an Ohio attorney or the local Legal Aid or Legal Services office that assists indigents.
