Yes, Social Security CAN and WILL be garnished for defaulted student loans. Theyll take anything over 750 or 15% whichever is more. Just try getting it dismissed for disability, Its IMPOSSIBLE!! No matter how long you've been on disability!! PS They wont allow government aid like food stamps to increase to make up difference either! GOD BLESS AMERICA! I borrowed 2250 25 years ago, (BIG MISTAKE)now with collection fees its almost 10000 and they'll harass me to the grave, even making me poorer then poorest person on welfare!! I LOVE this country!! NOT!!! and NO they do not lend money to people as dirt poor as I am and have always been to refinance!! I just LOVE this country!!
