OK, so some people have said that No you absolutely cannot work part time if you are applying for SSI disability, that it is an automatic denial if you're even working limited part time. Then there are those who say that Yes, you can work part time and apply for SSI.
Here is my question..... so, then, why is it that after you are approved and are on SSI disability, why is it that you ARE allowed to work some part time then?? Seems to me then, that in fact you can work part time while applying for and waiting for your SSI claim? Perhaps it varies from state to state? Any opinions on this? I'm sort of confused.
I applied for SSI, back in June 2009, have an attorney and have gone thru my first denial, we've appealed and are now waiting. But if I do not try to at least work some part time, I will be homeless and have no food or things I need to live, as I am single with no family and no other means of support. It has been extremely difficult tho in trying to find any part time job I am capable of doing though, in the last year and a half I have tried about 17 jobs, none lasted more than a couple months, due to my health issues.
