I was recently awarded long term disability from my employer (January 2014). However, since I am a teacher, I am not paid through the summer months. I am wondering if I can find myself a job of some easy variety to supplement my income without compromising my disability income. I feel like there are days I could work--certain hours and certain jobs. But I fear flagging myself as "able to work" and loosing my income for the long haul. How much am I allowed to work while on long term disability?
Also, I would love to go to school. That is something I could easily do from home and at my own pace, but again, I am afraid of compromising my disability income. Is that an unreasonable fear?
Do you know how long long term disability lasts?
I have metastasized breast cancer to the bones and some soft tissue. Am doing "ok" right now, though am being recommended for new treatment. bla bla bla Always something, right?
Thank you for considering my questions, and taking time to address them.
