I'll update more later after contact the US Embassy in Tokyo, but do you guys know anything about this stuff? Seems like if I owe money they will start taking it out of my Social Security ?

US Social Security? Yes. If you owe anything federal, they can garnish any federal payments. Only companies can't garnish at that level.

If you mean Japan's social security (Japan Pension Fund), I'm uncertain of it, but it could be possible with the treaties and such between the two nations.

Well, I sent them an email. They want I believe a copy of my Kokumin Nenkin. I made a mistake by telling them that is NOT under the Totalization Agreement between Japan and the US.
I think I'll get it all cleared up.
