Social Security can order your employer to deduct up to 15 percent of your disposable pay. Disposable pay means your compensation after deductions such as health insurance premiums, Federal, state, and local taxes. You are entitled to keep an amount of disposable pay equal to at least 30 times the Federal minimum wage per week.  If your pay is being garnished for other debts, your total garnishments will not exceed 25 percent of your disposable pay.
