No, but SSI isn't exempt from garnishment for student loans. In some cases, funded by the federal government student loans can be forgiven if the borrower becomes mentally and/or physicallyand deterioration to the point that he or she will never have sufficient capacity to work, and if a doctor is going to sign off on the disability. Edit: SSI CAN be garnished for federal student loans. This was part of the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996. Edited wording total and permanent disability of the qualifications.
