Yes, the Treasury Department can garnish Veterans' and Social Security benefits for a limited number of reasons: Repay child support arrearsUnpaid alimonyDelinquent federal t…axes (IRS) Debt to other federal agencies (even the VA) Generally, the government only withholds 15% of the benefit amount for government debt, but they often garnish larger amounts for mandatory alimony and child support payments. The only benefits the US government can't attach are Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments, a form of welfare for the disabled and retired people age 65 and older.
No. Disability payments are one of the few sources of income that are exempt from levy. Not so fast - check out 5 CFR 581.103 for what sources of income are subject to ga…rnishment. You will be surprised to say the least..... A typical VA Disability Compensation payment is not income and is not subject to garnishment. If a former service member was initially awarded military disability retirement (which is income), and the member opted instead for VA Disability Compensation, the amount of the award that could have been taken as disability retirement can be garnished. Most veterans in receipt of Disability Compensation were not previously eligible for military disability retirement as the system discourages it by making it a difficult experience. 5 CFR 581.103 refers to garnishment for enforcement of child support orders. The Treasury Department does enforce child support through their Treasury Offset Program, so this may be applicable. However, for a tax debt 26 USC 6334 specifically provides that VA Disability Payments are exempt from levy.
Your VA disability to my knowledge is untouchable to all creditors, to include child support, and student loans. Your student loans will affect your credit report negati…vely until it is in good standing. It will never go away or default. You can not claim it on a bankruptcy either.
Yes, pension and Social Security payments may be garnished by the IRS to satisfy Federal tax levies and judgments. Please see the links below for additional information.
Lets start with, those items can be garnished. However, as they are personal, not Corporate, for them to go after them for most corporate debts (like income tax), they ba…sically have to claim (and support) that the corporation was actually your "alter ego". But, if the Corporate debt your speaking of was payroll withholding (or any of those trust fund taxes...like employer or employee FICA), in which case ALL officers (and even non officers if they were in a position of responsibility for them) are always entirely responsible individually. (The taking of these types of funds, which are actually your employees, is considered theft and fraud, and may be pursued criminally as well as "piercing the corporate veil").

Generally now with a few exceptions, depending on where you live. Here is the pecking order for garnishments: 1) Taxes 2) Criminal Fines (Usually related to restitution …or fraud) 3) Child Support (limited amount can be taken - depends on the other two) 4) Punitive law suits 5) Creditor action from judgments All those can be taken from your benefit check(s). Some states may allow other garnishments but usually they follow federal laws. If it is a simple debt like a credit card, your 401K and disability cannot be touched. If you hurt or kill someone while you are driving drunk, you cannot escape having to pay, which is proper and just. Most jurisdictions require an extra 10% of the garnishment to be withheld, just in case. Example: you get garnered for $100. The courts force your bank to hold $110.00. Note: if you or your spouse own anything of significant value generally those can be forcibly taken, sold, and proceeds applied to the garnisher's claim by a Conversion of Collateral. If your spouse is financially well-to-do, it is quite possible they can take THEIR money to satisfy YOUR problem, if you have a joint bank account or file tax returns jointly.
Technically and legally, no. But, they do try and sometimes are successful until the garnishee files suit to have the judgment garnishment quashed. FYI, Never commingle fund…s in a bank account when there are monies that are exempt from IRS or state tax agencies or judgment creditors. Always keep exempt funds in a separate account designated as such.
Usually. Even though there are some laws protecting all pensions the IRS has been successful in seizing such funds payment of tax arrearages. This includes Social Security ben…efits as well as military and/or government employee pensions and privatized benefits. In other words, the IRS can do ALMOST anything they choose to collect taxes owed.
It can be garnished by the federal government. Federal student loans, IRS debt, ect. Also if you owe back child support or alimony payments, it can be garnished. However, it c…annot be garnished by regular creditors.
