Thread: Finally got a job, what now?

    Finally got a job, what now?

    So after six years post injury a friend of mine from my AB days recommended me to a company and they have given me a job managing their companies California office. Although I have no experience doing this sort of thing, they seem to be convinced that I am the perfect candidate for the job. They are being very accommodating about everything. They are letting me start working from home and it is pretty much up to me whether or not I ever go into the office, but they are going to make it handicap ready for me just in case I ever do want to go in to work. My concern is that I have a lot of old tax debt and also my daughter gets SSDI. right now the IRS has me on the list as being too low income to collect. Once I start making money again I'm sure that will quickly change. Once they begin taking their maximum allowable amount I am pretty sure that I will be making less every month than I am now not working. Also up until about two months ago I was experiencing problems with my pain meds for about 7months prior, and I would not be able to work in that condition. I am trying really hard to do my best, but after 6 years of doing nothing I keep having problems with my ability to think as well. I just started a week ago and I am keeping the hours worked low enough that I won't exceed their $1000 maximum/ month amount on paper. Do I need to notify SS that I have a job now, or do I wait until I get a check? I have some other questions, but right now they are eluding me, so I will continue this later.

    Social Security has a program called "Ticket to Work".
    You can try working and keep all your SSD payments and benefits plus whatever the company pays you for the trial work period.

    Thank you for the information. I think that I now have a much better understanding of how everything works and unfortunately when all is said and done my life is unlikely to ever be worth living anyway.
