Let's say wages were garnished for 30 years for federal student loan debt, and upon entering retirement, can garnishment continue from social security benefits?
This forum isn't appropriate for hypothetical questions, but I have seen social security benefits attached to pay student loans. BTW, garnishment is a term that usually applies only to wages, and not to the taking of other forms of property. Hope this perspective helps!
Yes, if there is still a balance due. However, in these sorts of cases we look at administrative discharge of the loans.
As stated, we don't appreciate hypothetical questions, because what invariably happens is the Asker comes back and inserts new facts or back story that ends up changing the answers.
