Should an Elderly Person File for Bankruptcy?

My only income is Social Security, why should I file for bankruptcy?

If your only income is social security, which cannot be garnished by creditors, should you file for bankruptcy protection?  Although garnishment may not be a risk for someone whose only income is social security, filing for bankruptcy protection can stop creditor harassment, prevent the possibility of arrest and avoid the inconvenience of getting an elderly or disabled person to court hearings.
