I have been preparing to file for SSDI. I am able to do 1 hour of light activity a day without triggering an exacerbation (most days). I am still seeing a handful of clients at my private practice; one hour session per day; 3-5 days a week. Days that I see a client; I must rest the remainder of the day. I am only able to do this because my husband has taken over all of the shopping and housework since I went into this acute phase at the end of March 2010. The Disability Atty I spoke with said that as long as I"m earning under $1000 a month (I am) that it won't interfere with my getting SSDI. Last night, I was reading part of the Handbook for getting SSDI that was recommended on this site (download) and in it is stresses that you must not be working at all; not even part time when applying. I'm looking for other's feedback and experience with this. Has anyone applied & been awarded SSDI while still working a very minimal number of hours? Tx!
