*BEFORE YOU POST, LISTEN TO THE VIDEO~! NOT ALL OF US ARE ABLE TO JUST GO OUT AND GRAB A JOB~TRUST ME, THE RABBIT HOLE GOES DEEPER THAN MOST BELIEVE! PLEASE DO NOT JUDGE PEOPLE WHO ARE STUCK AND DON'T JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS UNTIL YOU HEAR THEIR STORY*
Need some confirmation on this news, it's also being reported on RT New (which, is why I'm requesting confirmation); I knew about 3 months ago this was coming and about 2 months ago, I thought it was already in place since I had to renew my app for EBT, which is odd, since I remember doing it just 3 months before. If this is true and the states/Gov are implementing the rule, then...you can do your own 'math'.
I'm really hoping that this isn't so but......

bad advice probably, unless it gets impossible for him to work...
first he might be earning more now than he could possibly get from disability..
and well, I'm not sure, but he might end up waiting a good time with no income..
by working, he is proving to them that he can work, he could get disability, maybe, but him working reduces his chances considerably. and well, unless he can prove that he had a disablility that prevented him from working, there's something like a three or four month waiting period.... and well the max that pays out is a little over $700 dollars.

I would go as far as to say that you are making your own choice to suffer through it and thats good for you but I gotta tell you that working two jobs with an old injury like that is just stupid in my mind but again to each his own.
When was still working I did that alot too walk around with broken ribs, foot bones, torn up knees that would literally bend inward randomly where I had to catch myself with the other leg so as not to fall.
Finally I figured why should I keep doing this until my body is kaput I mean I deserve to preserve what little of my health I have left and I am fine with being broke as hell or no money at all having made such a choice.
Then again I know several people who are able bodied but they go in and whine about anxiety next thing you know they are walking around with an anxiety animal and a thousand dollar check every month when we have people with far far worse health conditions going flat out ignored by doctors and they Social Security system.
If you are eligible for Social Security disability benefits, there is a five-month waiting period before we can begin your benefits. We will pay your first benefit for the sixth full month after the date we find your disability began.
