A default judgment can be taken against you but Social Security cannot be garnished directly. Once in a bank account, the bank account can garnished though.

A creditor has the right to obtain a judgment against you, if warranted by the facts and law, even if it is not collectable because all of your income and assets are exempt. I suggest that you instead examine whether the creditor's claim is warranted by the facts and law.
