Can My Social Security Check be Garnished for Student Loan Payments? – Sherry

“Dear Steve,

I am 70 years old and live on Social Security. I have a small student loan that is very difficult if even possible to make.

Can my Social Security Check be attached for the payments?

Sherry”

Dear Sherry,

If it is a government backed student loan then yes, your social security check can be garnished.
