Self Employment While on Disability?Save as Favorite
Hello Career Coaches!
I am receiving disability payments through my employer and am currently working part-time while taking chemotherapy. Because of the decline in my current industry, I have thought about starting my own business and working in a freelance capacity on the side. However, I want to ensure that I wouldn't be committing fraud or doing anything illegal by creating a start-up, nor do I want to jeopardize my current disability arrangement. Please advise on the legality of starting a small business while receiving disability benefits through an employer. Thank you!
