  • Yes, but they do allow you to work a little. It is limited though. Certainly if you are disabled you do not have the ability to work a full time job and be able to support yourself.

  • It is limited, I am 40% disabled from my military rating. I can still work, but I can't stand for long periods of time and employers have to take that into account if they hire me. I worked fast food and I was allowed short breaks to stretch out. I was still a good worker. Now if I was 100% rated, I would not be allowed to work.

  • there are some disabilities that are automatic If the disability will result in death. Like End stage renal disease, which is what I have. Eventually it will kill me. I can work part time, but not full because of what I have to do to live. I have dialysis three times a week and it pretty much washes me out. I will sleep for 20hrs straight after dialysis. But you CAN'T get disability unless you have been classified as such in most cases.

  • Thank you bearsjen. You are so right, something I am not proud of at all, and the process is terrible!
