    I'm not sure about your "run of the mill" creditors... BUT I do know for a fact that the IRS can and will garnish a persons SS. My mothers SS check was garnished for back taxes that she owed and it was almost 20% of her monthly amount.

    As for your question on the bank account, I do not know about that.

    Hope this helps! :)
