  • Most work from home jobs are scams . Also if you work they may reduce your disability anyway.

  • Usually social services and catholic charities are your best bet. Also sometimes for electric if you contact the company they can work a plan with you. Good luck!

  • If you live in a small town, you might get some assistance from your town office. Also, if you attend church your church may have a small one time 'help' fund. Take in some ironing, or find some kind of work you can do with your disability.

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, ..
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization (along with medical billing and small business marketing), I also do career and job search coaching.
