DC-SC-8 (11/18)
INCOME AND PROPERTY
THAT ARE
EXEMPT FROM PAYMENT ORDERS
(This list of exempt income and property is not comprehensive. It is provided to assist the court in avoiding
the issuance of orders that would require payment from exempt sources. When requesting a payment
order, the creditor bears the burden of proving that the debtor has sufficient non-exempt income or
property with which to satisfy the judgment. See G.L. c. 224, § 16.)
1. INCOME FROM THE FOLLOWING SOURCES is exempt by law from payment orders:
• Unemployment Benefits (G.L. c. 151A, § 36)
• Workers Compensation Benefits (G.L. c. 152, § 47)
• Social Security Benefits (42 U.S.C. § 401)
• Federal Old-Age, Survivors & Disability Insurance Benefits (42 U.S.C. § 407)
• Supplementary Security Income (SSI) for Aged, Blind & Disabled (42 U.S.C. § 1383[d][1])
• Other Disability Insurance Benefits up to $400 weekly (G.L. c. 175, § 110A)
• Emergency Aid for Elderly & Disabled (G.L. c. 117A)
• Veterans Benefits
• Federal Veterans Benefits (38 U.S.C. § 5301[a])
• Special Benefits for Certain WW II Veterans (42 U.S.C. § 1001)
• Medal of Honor Veterans Benefits (38 U.S.C. § 1562)
• State Veterans Benefits (G.L. c. 115, § 5)
• Transitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) Benefits (G.L. c. 118, § 10)
• Maternal Child Health Services Block Grant Benefits (42 U.S.C. § 701)
• Other public assistance benefits (G.L. c. 235, § 34, cl. fifteenth)
• Payouts from certain Massachusetts employee pension plans (G.L. c. 32, § 19)
2. Certain PERSONAL AND REAL PROPERTY is also exempt from payment orders, including:
• $2,500 in cash or savings or other deposits in a banking or investment institution (G.L. c. 235, § 34, cl.
fifteenth)
• Automobile or vehicle up to exemption limit (G.L. c. 235, § 34, cl. sixteenth)
• Other specific types of personal property are exempt under other clauses of G.L. c. 235, § 34
• Real estate subject to automatic or declared homestead exemption (G.L. c. 188) and, in lieu thereof, the
amount of money necessary for rent, up to $2,500 per month (G.L. c. 235, § 34, cl. fourteenth)
• There are also exemptions for “aggregate” amounts, up to maximum limits, of certain unused exemptions
(G.L. c. 235, § 34, cl. seventeenth)
3. In addition, A PORTION OF WAGES AND CONTRIBUTIONS TO EMPLOYMENT-BASED
RETIREMENT PLANS is exempt by law from payment orders.
Massachusetts law exempts the greater of 85% of the debtor’s gross earnings or 50 times the greater of
the Federal minimum wage ($7.25 as of 7/24/09) or the Massachusetts minimum wage ($11/hr. until
12/31/18 per G.L. c. 151, § 1; $12/hr. as of 1/1/19; $12.75/hr. as of 1/1/20; $13.50/hr. as of 1/1/21;
$14.25/hr. as of 1/1/22; and $15/hr. as of 1/1/23) for each week or portion thereof (G.L. c. 224, § 16 & c.
235, § 34, cl. fifteenth). The amount exempt under federal law (15 U.S.C. §§1671-1677) may exceed the
Massachusetts exemption. If so, the federal exemption applies.

Orders.
