    The answer is NO. A good website to view is ssa.gov and key in ‘disability’. SSDI, SSI, your pension, retirement, public assistance (welfare or any type of government aide), and I believe if you worked for the railroad (Amtrak, Conair, etc.) wages can not be garnished. As for as them going after your husband, only if he is a JOINT cardholder or CO-APPLICANT of any loans or credit cards. If he is an AUTHORIZED USER of a credit card then NO.
