I JUST spoke to a person that is part of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University - a certified consultant/counselor and he stated that creditors cannot garnish unemployment checks or the wages earned via an unemployment claim.

Additionally, when I spoke to the main FPU number in TN, the counselor online stated that creditors cannot garnish SS and disability pensions/wages, either.
