Can a collection agency sue my for a defaulted student loan and attach my ssi benefits?

Yes, you may be sued for defaulted student loans. When you refer to SSI are you talking about Supplemental Security Income? If so, that's generally safe. But Social Security retirement and disability payments may be garnished to repay student loans, though there are limitations.

If you have a federal student loan, contact the Department of Education's Ombudsman at 877-557-2575.
