Why? Social Security Disability Income is exempt from your creditors, even if they get a judgment, they can't take the SSDI money. Unless you have some assets that they can take, I wouldn't recommend a bankruptcy. They might give you some calls and letters but unless you're a snowflake, just tell them that you're not paying.

Yes, but you don't have to. The creditors cannot take your SSI benefits.
