If Social Security is a Constitutionally, Legal, Federal Government Program the answer is no. If Social Security is an unConstitutional, Federal Government Program the answer is still no.

Can a co-signers Social Security entitlements be garnished and made to pay a car in full after repossession?

ssa-custhelp Section 207 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 407) protects Social Security benefits from assignment, levy, or garnishment. However, the law provides five exceptions: **child support and tax debt and other govt. debts.** The Social Security Administration's responsibility for protecting benefits against legal process and assignment usually ends when the beneficiary is paid. However, once paid, benefits continue to be protected under section 207 of the Act only as long as they are identifiable as Social Security benefits. This applies to money in a bank account where the only payments into the account are from direct deposit of Social Security benefits. NOTE: Supplemental Security Income payments cannot be levied or garnished.

You are entitled to have a single social security card, which contains your unique social security number. You can obtain a replacement, but the number should be the same as the first one.

The vast majority of this is based on typos and mistakes and are not intentional.
