You cannot get out of paying your bills just because you are on disability. You might look at filing bankruptcy given that you need all of your income to pay your living expenses.

We'd need to know more to tell you if filing Bk is your best option. Could be that you're judgment proof and doing nothing might be a better option. Get a free consultation with an experienced bankruptcy attorney. Inexperienced or new attorneys tend to need business and sometimes that effects their objectivity. Good luck!

If the entirety of your income is disability (SSDI), your income is "collection proof." Your creditors may sue you for what you owe and win a judgment against, but they cannot force a collection of this income. A bankruptcy will stop them from bothering you and allow you to repair your credit. There are also many debt consolidation firms which may be able to help you get onto a manageable repayment plan with your creditors. you should consult a debt resolution or bankruptcy attorney to discuss these options.
