Is there a statue of limitation on collection of federal debt?

I owe money to the SSA from an over-payment I was given many years ago. When I filed my 2015, they took my refund. I did not file any more taxes until now (for 2018 taxes). I just checked on the IRS website and it said my whole refund was being deposited in my bank. Is there a limit to how long SSA can garnish... show more I owe money to the SSA from an over-payment I was given many years ago. When I filed my 2015, they took my refund.

Is there a limit to how long SSA can garnish your taxes?

Not sure if it matters, but I live in MI.
