Working while Disabled
YES you Can Work while Disabled.
I Have Been
Therefore you may also be able. Depending what kind of work you would seek, physical limitations and or mental limitations may prevent you working. But sometimes those thing can be overcome quite cleverly.
Then again, maybe they do not. Basically, what can you do or not. If you are reading this, then you have a high speed internet and some sort of device.
Laptop or desktop, possibly a tablet. All would work, although I find the laptop easiest.
Can you operate the system? Spend some time learning something new, possibly new. I have been able to this, as long as I take breaks, sometimes 4 days!
You have these thing, you can work online most assuredly. There is something you can do, may even want to do, that makes it easier.
My brain becomes mush after a couple days, I have to walk away for a couple days. This is ok, because there is no time limit on the training, go at your own speed.
Limits from SSDI?
Benefits from SSDI are taken away if you earn of a set amount in any month. you are allowed a nine month trial work period. During this period, you receive full benefits. In 2017 in the trial months, you can earn as much as you can, no penalty.
This lasts for 9 months. If you go over any month after that, BANG, gotcha. This trigger is any month you made over $840.00. This is gross pay, not after taxes and deductions.
The SGA amount is $1170.00. That is Substantial Gainful Activity. Sometimes referred to the Gotcha Clause. What that means, you make that money and they feel you no longer need your benefits. This comes into play after going over the $840.00. Trust me this gets very confusing. Special meanings for works and formulas. My head is spinning!
I can’t understand that reasoning, anyone out there? If someone does please let me know.
But I believe that a large percentage of us, would like to earn enough, so we could kiss SSDI goodbye forever. I know that is one of my goals. Do you agree, it could be done. Agree?
They go me with it in 2015. I was just working along, part time, not paying much attention to my paystubs. BANG, letter from SSDI, we will be paying you benefits for the next two months, after witch your benefits will cease.!
I will tell you, that will take wind from your sails. After checking it was found that I was indeed over, of course. Only about $30.00, we found it was to me working an extra shift to fill in for another employee.
A trip to the local SSA office, with a representative to do the talking everything was straightened out. My duties now, were to send in copies of check stubs and timesheets every month.
If you are in a different country and have another system you should check for limitations. Your benefits coming from elsewhere? You will need to check for stipulations and stay on top of any requirements, of course.
Nobody wants to terminate there benefits until a better thing is assured and locked down. Seems a prudent plan, how about you?
What do you know everything about?
Think about it, must be something. This could be, something you could talk all about, advise other people on whatever it is. A niche is a relatively small segment of people you could “sell”. It is something like, Fishing is one thing, but ice fishing is a niche.
Same as bass fishing a niche, but still too large in most cases. But you get the idea. Right?
Click the link the link below, goes to a training lesson about niche. Very informative.
This is just one of the training lessons. There is a course available for absolutely FREE. NO arguing that price is there?
Writing content is just writing about what you know and want to share with your audience. Usually this is your niche, making it much easier. Also less to researching.
The more content you write the better you get, as with most things.
How much time do you have in any given day? Do you ever think of having a business of your? Maybe you already have one and have been considering adding another income stream? Have you considered an online business.
I know that many of you, being disabled or handicapped, have been ridiculed at times. Mostly unfairly and often rudely. You are all better than that and you can make a difference in your life. If that is what you want.
For myself I reached a point that I realized, sitting on the couch drinking beer and watching TV, was not the way I wanted to die. Not the way to live my life. I am sure many of you feel the same. Time to do something.
Thank you for taking time out of you day to visit my website.
