With SSI, they will count the money you earn and will probably not be able to keep the SSI. They have a formula though. If you have a ticket to work, use it. You can get training as well, paid for. If you also get SSA (SSDI) you will be able to keep it for 9 months (trial work period) and keep your medicare for 5 years. If at anytime during the 5 year period, you find yourself unable to work you can get right back on it. Without the 2 year wait to be approved. Also while you are using your ticket you will not be re-evaluated, to see if your condition has gotten better. (you know the every year or so meeting.

Courtney....do you have a skill or any interests? Are you receiving SSDI and SSI or just SSI? You are in a difficult situation and I certainly hope you get some good advice here. I applaud you for trying to change your situation.

Skye, You are correct. It is tough to try to work with a little one and still care for yourself. I am 32 and when I had my daughter I stopped working because there was no way I could do everything. I was able to maintain my health for years. I realize now that even when the kids are older it is difficult. I got my education hoping that it would lead to a less stressful work environment. Yes, it will (when I start working) but, my health is declining and I think it is so easy for us to not prioritize Our health. Especially when we are caring for children and a family.

It is a tough spot to be in. I gave information about the SSI because I worked with Ticket to work and I have used my ticket. I have my Masters degree in Rehabilitation Counseling. Feel free to ask questions, if I know them I will let you know. Most of what I know will be California related.

I think there may be an amount you can make and still get SSI.You might want to check with your worker because this is different for everyone and every family size. Just curious How was your child diagnosed at such a young age without mutations? I would assume she would have one of your F508s. And could you get SSI for your child at all??

when it comes to ssi they have a formula where they calculate how much to take out. i currenty make abouut 1100 a month at my job and i still get ssi of about 80 dollars. i figured i wouldnt get anything because i made too much but i do. and i still am able to keep my insurance.

Hi Courtney,

<a target=_blank class=ftalternatingbarlinklarge href="http://www.yourtickettowork.com/program_info">http://www.yourtickettowork.com/program_info</a> this is the ticket to work website. I'm not sure how useful it will be because anything dealing with SSI is always confusing. But hopefully it will help a little. Good Luck. =)
