Section 1. Payments of benefits due or become due to any person residing in the Philippines under the laws of the United States administered by the United States Veterans Administration shall not be assignable, and such payments made to, or on account of, a beneficiary under any laws of the United States administered by the United States Veterans Administration relating to veterans residing in the Philippines shall be exempt from taxation as well as from claims of creditors, and shall not be liable to attachment, levy, or seizure by or under any legal or equitable process whatsoever, either before or after receipt by the beneficiary.
