My aged father will be spending his last months/years in a nursing home. His only "income" is his Social Security check. Check gets sent directly to me. From this: - $30 is withheld for monthly pocket money - $149 pays for his AARP Health Insurance Premium - Balance goes to Nursing Home. - MediCaid picks up whatever more is needed to keep him in the home. Dad has no savings. He owes $3,500 on a VISA card. There's no way to pay this debt. Question: Can VISA "attach" his Social Security income to pay down this debt, or in any other way jeopardize his regular receipt of same?

My mother talked to an lawyer about bankruptcy and when they found out her income was social security they told her not to file because her checks could not be garnished. She owed on various credit cards etc.. this was a couple of years ago so it may no longer apply.
