Like my VA disability compensation, your Social Security and disability compensation are income sources that generally cannot be garnished so bankruptcy would not be needed.  If you wish to speak to a bankruptcy attorney in your area, you can find one in the phone book and they generally offer a free consultation the first visit.  Or you might contact Legal Aid for assistance with whatever is troubling you.
