What would you like to do?
No. If a creditor other than the federal government tries to garnish your Social Security benefits, inform them that such an action violates Section 207 of the Social Security… Act (42 U.S.C. 407). Additional Information I only work as a paralegal at a judgment recovery firm which handles wage garnishments and bank account garnishments to collect money from judgments which have already been settled, I am not an attorney and I recommend you speak to one for legal advice. With that said, the basic answer is no they cannot. When pursuing for instance a bank account garnishment the law firm is required to send you a form notifying you of the garnishment action and included in this paperwork are some discovery forms where you will be asked a series of questions which they use to try and find other ways to collect such as other accounts you may have, etc. Included in this discovery is a form called "Claim of Exemption" where you have the option of saying that you are exempt from all or part of the garnishment because of reasons that you check off or write in. One of the options is social security benefits, which are specifically listed as exemptable income. Among various other things once you file this you say that they cannot take this money. Your money will remain frozen which is what happens when they move to garnish your account. The simple act of filing this though will prevent them from moving for a final judgment of garnishment which moves to actually have bank take the frozen money and send it to the firm. Now in my experience there are plenty bogus exemption claims, but when the exemption was for social security payments and the claim was valid, the case is usually dropped. occasionally usually on demand by the client the firm may move ahead with a hearing for an objection to your claim of exemption but if the claim is valid then even when defendants appear pro se (without an attorney) the exemption claim has ALWAYS been sustained by the judge and the objection overturned and soon after your money will no longer be frozen. Once again I advise you to speak to a licensed attorney for legal advice, this is just what I observe at our particular office as ONLY a paralegal. Good luck.

No, Social Security benefits continue unless you reenter the workforce and engage in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), which translates to earning more than an average of $1…,000 per month for most disabilities or $1,640 per month for blindness. If you remain unemployed or employed below the level of SGA, disability benefits automatically convert to retirement benefits when you reach full retirement age (for people born before 1943, age 65; for people born between 1943 and 1954, age 66). Your benefit amount will usually remain the same, except for standard cost of living adjustments (COLA), but there will no longer be a limit on the amount of income you can earn.
No, Social Security Disability can not be garnished for anything. That is not considered earned income. So no one can garnish it. sorry
Does your wife and child's checks stop after your ss disability changes to social security when you turn 65?
You need to address such questions with the Social Security department.
You can elect to discontinue Social Security disability benefits at any time; however, you may have to pay a visit to your local field office to prove you are the person to wh…om the check or deposit is issued.
The person does not receive SSDI anymore, they receive general old age social security.

Are Texas teachers who receive state retirement able to collect on husband's Social Security disability when they reach age 62?
no....because most teachers pay only into TRS (Teacher Retirement System) and not into SS, they will receive their TRS only...the government stopped a loop hole back in 2004 f…or receiving TRS and SS, because the government considers it double-dipping...so if a spouse paid into SS, the teacher cannot get spousal benefits from the spouse because it would be considered double dipping...there is a small chance that the teacher would be eligible for a small amount of her spouse's SS, or even her own if she worked her 40 quarters before teaching, but the amount would be subject to two penalties called the GPO and Windfall...please check your local SS office on more of these two penalties.
No, it is not a taxable income. Although they give you a 1099 at the end of the year. I would also check with your state laws and maybe a tax consultant if it is not your only… source of income.
It depends on the particular policy, so really the only way to know is to check with the insurance company that issued it or read the actual policy language itself. Generall…y speaking, benefits payable through a Group Long Term Disability policies (purchased by or through an employer) end either on the person's 65th birthday or else when the insured reaches "Social Security Normal Retirement Age", which is a sliding scale based on the date of the brith of the insured. There are also federal laws (ADEA in particular) which may affect the duration of benefit available based on the age the person becomes disabled. So for example, if a person is working and becomes disabled the day before their 65th birthday, they typically can expect a benefit period of more than just that day (for example, a full year may be available for that person, even though it is past their 65th birthday). There is often a chart listed in the policy which shows maximum benefit duration based on the age at which the insured becomes disabled. Other policies have a flat maximum benefit duration, for example a flat 2 years, a flat 5 years, or a flat 10 years. Finally, whenever discussing maximum benefit durations it should always be noted that a maxim benefit duration is not a guarantee of payment for that duration. All requirements set forth in the policy must be met in order to continue receiving benefits. For example, a policy may allow benefits to be paid to age 65, however after the 2nd year of disability the insured must be receiving Social Security Disability benefits in order to also receive a disability benefit. Other policies may specific a limited benefit duration, such as for mental health, substance abuse or "subjective symptom" conditions. So in those cases, benefits may end well before the maximum specified in the policy.

As long as a person works, they continue to pay "wage taxes", even if decide to start collecting SS while they are working. This is neither silly or unfair, since, as each yea…r they continue to pay into the system, the higher their benefit goes up, so that they may see an increase in their SS beyond any cost of living increase. I am assuming by a person's "check", you meant a paycheck. If she just receives a SS check, no, the only taxes taken out is the Federal Income Tax, if she requests it.
