    I know you can make like $7,000 a year or something. Is there anyone out there that finds the time to do anything extra. I need to start make something extra so I could stash some cash from the hubby.

    Pain is...If I could work I would.My doctors even told me they do not think I would be able to .I have lots of r issues .

    I no longer can drive clean nor cook.I just hate it.

    You can work I believe your allowed to make 800.00 a month.You do need to report it to SS if you do return to work part time.

    Good luck

    SSI....is different than SSDA....suggest you check with Social Security so you don't have any surprises.

    Hello Lin,
    I know that if one is on SSI the rules are different
    than one on SSDI. From what I know, the extra income
    allowed is very minimal under the SSI rule. I would
    contact them or go buy the SSA office near you and pick-
    up a booklet on the suject.

    I believe the NOLO legal series of paper bounds also
    addresses tha question in their book on pursuing SS
    disability claims. There may be one in your library.
    See: www.nolo.com

    Best Wishes,
    MRDAD

    I do something from home for west corporation. Its extra income, various hours (you choose-so this would help you not go over your limit) sitting at the computer answering calls. Good luck.
