Garnishing Pension Payments The short answer is NO. All Social Security benefits and most private pensions are exempt from creditor judgments. SS, SSi, SSD are all completely exempt from any garnishment or seizure. On the other hand, your pension depends on the type and what your state statutes allow for exemptions. Every state has set exemptions for Chapter 11, 7, 13, these also apply to any judgment granted in a lawsuit. More than likely your pension will be completely exempt.
