Hi Everyone,
I have a question about SSI and working. I can't work yet so this is a future question. Does it matter what kind of job you have? I hope to be able to work part-time eventually.  I used to be a personal trainer before I got sick and I wanted to do something in that field when I am able to work again. It's what I know and love.  If I did something like training part-time would they assume I could work full time and kick me off disability. If I taught a yoga class or something that would be just a few hours a week. As a trainer you are actually coaching someone not doing the work yourself. So has anybody had this happen to them or does SS not take into consideration the kind of work your doing. Thanks so much for any info. I'd like to have a dream that isn't squashed by fear :)
