I have been offered a full time contract position with a new employer after exhausting my FMLA last year during treatment and surgery. I am feeling great right now however I am concerned about returning to work for fear of jeopardizing both my private LTD (through the old employer) and Social security disability. The New positions is as a contractor, and I would not have benefits...so I am rolling a financial roulette. However this temporary position could become permanent with full benefits. I really want to return to some sense of normalcy and earn a living. I'm 50 years old with a rare Stage IV cancer that appears to be in remission for now... Please help!
