Can your Social Security disability benefits be garnished?

New Jerseyans receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are not immune from the normal vagaries of life. To the contrary, they are often more susceptible to hardships and bad luck. That can mean having trouble keeping up with key financial obligations like paying alimony, child support and taxes. Can getting behind on these obligations result in the person's SSDI benefits being garnished?

Can temporary injuries count as a disability?

Frequent readers of this blog know that normally a New Jersey resident must have a long-term issue - an issue likely to persist for at least a year - for the Social Security Administration to classify the impairment as a disability. But is that always true? Can some short-term injuries count as a disability too?

A basic primer on Social Security Disability

No one wants to have a disability. Having a minor disability can send ripples throughout a New Jersian's life. Having a severe one can fundamentally alter a person's life. But once a disability strikes, it is important that people know that help is available. It is possible to receive SSDI benefits for injuries or illnesses; benefits that can help make ends meet.
