If you are approved for SSDIB or SSI, as long as you keep the money in a bank account AND that is the ONLY money in the bank account, then any private judgments against you can garnish that bank account. If they do, go to your local field office immediately and report it.
Only child support and the federal government can take part of your SSDIB or SSI.
Non-Federal student loans and other debts can not be basis to garnish SS money if it is not mingled with other funds. Federal government student loans, and other Federal debts can be basis for garnishment.
