If your income is low enough (and it may well be if all you get is SSDI, but have a social worker check that out for you), then a creditor will not be able to get at your income. You did not mention assets, but creditors can get at assets, like put a lien against a home. That depends on your situation. Finally, your SSI income is not going to be a problem in the event you need to declare bankruptcy. Good luck. Mark J. Mahoney
