No, ALL Social Security benefits are protected by both federal and state laws and are totally exempt from creditor actions. A creditor has other options than garnishment, if the person owns real property, although for most seniors any property will likely be protected under state laws.

to assure the elderly that if another event like the Great Depression were to occur, elderly would be given a type of 'allowance' so that they could survive through hard times. During the Great Depression the elderly couldn't find jobs or were unable to work so social security was invented to bring aid to the elderly and disabled.
