    SSI benefits or Supplemental Security Income benefits are generally not seized for child support. The rational for this is that SSI is considered a public welfare benefit and is not considered income or is not derived from the claimant’s earnings record. Supplemental Security income is similar to other public benefits that are not seized such as food stamps.

    If a spouse is getting SSDI which is Social Security Disability Insurance, however, garnishments will be taken for child support.
