I have been on SSDI for mental illness since 2014. I am fortunate that I worked 25 plus years and get a bit more each month than some, but not nearly what I need. I am surviving. It seems as if the system is against people in this position. I would like to get a part time job to help with expenses, and to help with my mental health as well, but if I work too many hours or make over a certain amount then the help that I get with my high medical bills will stop. I have found it nearly impossible to find part time that will work for my situation. Employers are turned off pretty quickly when you tell them that you want minimal hours. I don't know where to look anymore. Has anyone else dealt with this? What did you try?
