Are SSI and Social Security Disability Payments Exempt from Bankruptcy Claims?

If you receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits and file for bankruptcy, your checks are usually safe.

If your benefits come from SSI, which is a welfare program for the needy, they are always exempt from creditor claims.

However, SSDI payments technically qualify as "work" income, so they may be subject to bankruptcy claims.
