No. Disability benefits are exempt from garnishment by a creditor.

Note: Even though such benefits are immune to creditor attachment if the beneficiary comingles their funds in a bank account the judgment creditor can levy said account. If that is done, the account holder(s) must provide documentation to the court as to the amount of funds that are exempt. For that reason, it is best to keep all exempted funds in designated separate accounts.
