    Yes it is true. You need to let the company AND your bank know that your money is from Social Security.
    It can be garnished IF it is a student loan, back taxes, child support or anything to do with the government.

    If they file lawsuit, you can file an exemption of property. You can list your bank accounts. I did that and I did not even have to send proof. I just stated that all money in the bank account were from SSDI and the court ruled in my favor and the company could not go after it. But, I am learning now, from people here, that they can file a lien against your home. That is happening to me. I contacted the agency and they put me on hardship payments of $15.00 a month and they even froze the interest. Contact them and see if they will work with you in the fashion. Good luck.
