My father is on disability and would like to get a job. However, he would only be making about 200.00 more than what his disability pays him (those 200.00 would probably be used for medical expenses like co-pay for doctors visits and medications).
He has heart problems. He can’t be out in the sun much because he becomes exhausted and as far as the stress level, he can’t have much of that either.
He used to own a transportation business about 20 years ago and had it for about 10 years. Back then he began to feel the pre-symptoms of a heart attack, however, he never seeked medical help until years later when he got a major heart attack. He had open heart surgery and since then his health has not been all that great. When he had his business he would have sleepless nights and a tremendous amount of stress, plus he was a drinker. I think all of that deteriorated his health tremendously and even his personality.
He was wondering if he were to get a job if he would lose his disability income.
Does anyone know?
