  1. You should consult with a collection attorney in your area. Social Security proceeds are exempt from garnishment, but that does not mean a creditor may not try and garnish that account. You may also consult a legal service organization that is dedicated to low income people in your area. Your State Bar Association may be able to assist you in finding a lawyer or law firm to help you.

    Good luck.
