STUDENT LOANS AND SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS

As a result of a 1996 federal law, the federal government is allowed to offset payments to people, including social security benefits and tax refunds, if they have any type of defaulted debt owed to the federal government, including student loans.  Thousands of retirees are being faced with the threat of having Social Security withheld for student loans.   In a recent report, it was shown that the federal government withheld Social Security for close to 115,000 retirees on the grounds of unpaid student loan debt.   This has doubled from 2011.  In 2000, there were just six cases.

For many people, the fact that Social Security is being withheld at all is a shock.  Normally, Social Security benefits cannot be touched by creditors.  There are criteria on how much the government can withhold but they must leave $750.00 on each monthly check.    If one was working a job that would translate into 174.42 per week after tax.   People having Social Security withheld fit a broad range, not just those who recently left college. Many of the people are older and delinquent on a range of loans, including federal student loans parents took out for their children.
