You’ll want to look at Treasury regulation 31 CFR 212, Garnishment of Accounts Containing Federal Benefit Payments. SSA payments do have protections under this regulation, but for certain garnishments (from US or state child support enforcement agency) there are exceptions. You’ll be looking for the Notice of Right to Garnish Federal Benefits. Reviewing the regulation and becoming familiar with the requirements will be most beneficial.
