Can social security benefits be garnished for old student loans?

(in the US) student loans are guaranteed by the government for the sole purpose of the borrower completing their education and becoming a contributing (and taxpaying) member of the community. As a general rule you are free from being garnished by the lender because the government guaranteed the lender they would be paid. How the government might approach you for your repayment to THEM is another matter. I have actually spoke with social security and they state that social security SSI can only be touched if you owe child support. It is need based and not even the government can take that from the individual. Call the Social Security/Disability office for further info.
