Can Social Security Disability be garnished for unpaid student loans?
The answer is NO, SSI will NEVER be garnished, except to repay SSI overpayments, which can be recovered by a 10% reduction of benefits. SSI will NEVER be garnished for student loans, back taxes, etc.

Regular social security payments (NOT SSI) can be garnished IF you draw MORE than $750/month. If you make LESS than $750/month, nothing can be taken from your earnings. A garnishment can take 15% or the amount OVER $750, whichever is less to repay a "non-tax" debt, such as a student loan.
