No. A credit card company can win a judgment against you, which is a court order to pay a debt. If you still refuse or cannot pay, they can garnish your wages. But the company, who is not the law, cannot take your vehicle. * Vehicles are protected to the extent of the exemption that is allowed under the laws of the state where the debtor resides. It is possible if the exemption does not protect the vehicle and there is a considerable amount of equity the judgment creditor can pay off the lender/lien holder give the debtor his or her exemption amount and then seize and sell the vehicle. This rarely happens as it is expensive and time consuming and the judgment creditor seldom garners enough excess monies for the action to be profitable.

You should not avoid paying the minimum due in your credit card account. The credit card company does not care if you lost your job. What you need to do is to speak with a credit consolidation agency in your area. Ask around about their reputation. The credit consolidation company will make a deal with your credit card company.

What happens when you are in a nursing home and can longer pay your credit cards?

You will default on your credit card accounts. Being an unsecured loan, there is little a credit card company can do. That is a risk credit card companies take. Regardless of why you can't pay, non-payment will result in default. The extent to which a credit card company will attempt to collect depends on whether or not they feel you have sufficient income.
