Work At Home For The Disabled

Share

Recently I received an email from one of our loyal visitors Linda which read as follows:

"Hi Eddy,
 Thanks for all the information you have sent me.  I would like to ask you if you have any knowledge of work at home sites for people with hearing disabilities.
I am hearing disabled, and a lot of the legit work at home sites have jobs for call centers or involving extensive phone work.  I am looking for administrative work. I know work at home jobs are hard to come by and when your are disabled it is even harder.
Thanks for any information you can provide.
- Linda"

I'm always happy to hear from you, the users of our site. It brings me tremendous joy, every time I read an email about how someone has learned a great deal about work at home or avoiding a scam, because of what they've read here. And although Linda's email expressed these sentiments, it was a bit different.

I was very embarrassed that we failed to include resources for our disabled users.  At the very least we should have written an article. After all, I have had enough insight to write content for our international work at home seekers.  But I really dropped the ball when it came to work at home seekers with disabilities. So we would like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize to our disabled users.

Too often we're all guilty of just living in our own little worlds. I take it for granted that I can see, write, walk and talk with little effort. But that's not the case for everyone. We already know how difficult it is to find a legitimate work at home job when you have no disabilities. But imagine the uphill battle that your disabled counter parts have to fight everyday!

So with that said we have compiled a list of disabled friendly work at home job related resources below.  I hope it does help this portion of the population that we have unintentionally ignored.

NTI Central
 
Lift-INC.org
 
Office of Disability Employment Policy
 
Job Accommodation Network
 
Melwood.com

MyEmploymentOptions.com

Pearl Interactive Network

 

Final Thoughts

Although this article was really aimed at our disabled work at home seekers. I would like the job seekers that suffer no disabilities to have a better appreciation for their situations. Too often as work at home seekers we do a lot of complaining about how we can't find that perfect work at home job. Hopefully you can take away from this article that you're very are a lot more fortunate in other ways than you've realized.

    I just read the article that was published about you and your success. I was very happy to see on your site that you are also including the disabled. I have been to NTI before but I wasn’t aware of the other sites and I have been going through them like crazy and with a renewed sense of hope. It ‘is’ very difficult to find ‘real’ work from home jobs without having to ‘pay’.. and I know that if they ask for money.. run! My disability is from an on the job injury.. 3herniated disc and Fibromyalgia.. whoopee.. BUT there is nothing wrong with my brain and trying to live off of SSI being a single parent.. just ‘ain’t’ getting it. Thank you for including the information!!

    Hi Debi,

    Thanks for your comments. I was starting to wonder if this article was helping any of our disabled work at home seekers. Thank goodness you left a comment!

    Trust me I hear you sister. Ain’t nothing wrong with your brain and you can get the job done! Hopefully the sites will help.

    Hope to see you on the site again.

    I’m on SSI and I only get so much money a month and I have a 3 yr old. So I figured doing something at home would help me out. Finding something that had to do with the disabled just fit in.. I love how we just get classified! So hey when my net comes back up in 2 weeks I’ll get back to you. But don’t lose me!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com eddysalomon

    Sounds good Lisa. Look forward to seeing you back on the site.

    Hi Lee,

    Thanks for your comments and being a source of inspiration.
    It’s amazing what doctor’s think and say and then people go and prove just the opposite.

    In any event, in terms of finding free legit work at home, use the resources we listed in the article above.

    Thanks

  • http://www.jeffreysolochek.com Jeffrey Solochek

    It’s about time that I see a site that gives unbiased advice for job seekers especially for the ones who wish to work from home.

    I also am disabled and a lot of the work companies will try to work with people. God knows that offline companies will not even help.

    Hi Jeffrey,

    Thanks for your comments.

    Hi Eddy,

    I have a hearing impairment, which means I am rubbish on phones and I now also have Fibromyalgia, which means I spend all day every day at home as I am not well enough to go out. I have a degree but no money…incapacity benefit doesn’t pay enough and I’m getting married in May!!!

    I have been searching for “work at home” jobs and have come across loads of scams but no ‘real’ sites. I am glad that you have found helpful sites for us.

    However, I am from the UK and all your sites are American. can you point me in the direction of some legit “work at home” UK sites for disabled people??

    I really hope you can help, I am desperate and at my last tether, money worries are tearing me apart

    Sorry to offload on you

    Gill

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com eddysalomon

    Hi Gill,

    Thanks for your kind words.
    Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
    No worries about offloading on me. That’s what this site is about.

    Ok, first and foremost we have some international work at home job information you should check out at:
    http://www.WorkAtHomeNoScams.com/international

    We haven’t forgotten about the folks outside the U.S.
    So make use of that resource. I think the techniques listed there will still apply to you regardless of your disabilities.

    Next I would still encourage you to visit those US sites listed above. But just email them and ask them for international resources. I’m pretty certain they are abreast of other resources. Hopefully that will help.

    If I run into international resources, I’ll be sure to update this article or post a new one.

    I was very excited about this information. I never knew there were companies to hire the disabled to work from home. I checked out a few sites and am pleased to know that I could do work related to my profession of 22 years, Quality Assurance.
    I am disabled, with lumbar spinal stenosis, and cannot sit or stand for long periods of time. Working at home would be perfect for me as I could get up and “stretch” every so often.
    I will surely let you know if I get employment from one of these companies. Keep up the good work. Legit work at home jobs are few and far between.

    Hi

    I’m Lisa and I’m 30 yrs old. Ive been disabled since I was 18 yrs old and I too am on social security here in Florida. I have a walking leg disability. I am sooo frustrated trying to find a work from home job. It’s led to (very bad) crying & depression. I’ve been trying for 5 yrs now to find something real to do from home. My other situation is I couldn’t finish high school so I don’t have a diploma. I also have bad ADHD, OCD and public anxiety which I take xanax for. Anyway that’s the low down on me. I just want a job to work from home. Im not stupid I can read write type and so much more. Im not good at math science nor history. What cause of my disabilities. Besides the ADHD, OCD and anxiety was a car wreck(drunk driver) that put me in a coma and pins in my hips and messed up lower legs.

    Anyways I hope I can get some ideas from this site and some TRUE job help.
    I do understand fully that is takes time and dedication for anything a person does in life. I’m just tired of struggling and having NO money by the end of the 1st week of the month..Only making $570 a month SUCKS !

    Thanx 4 listening

    Hi Lisa,

    Thanks for sharing with us. You’ve definitely been through a lot in your life. I wish I could tell you there is a magic cure for working at home but I would be lying to you. Anything I would suggest takes time, effort and some of the best ways I make money requires a little investment.

    But I would suggest that you try many of the online programs like taking surveys, trying products, or affiliate marketing.

    You can find some recommendations for these things on the following page:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/category/legitimate-work-at-home/

    These things won’t make you a lot of money but some money coming in is better no money coming in.

    With that said, I have to be real with you education is very important. I would strongly encourage you to get your GED. I know there are classes you can take at home. It’s going to be hard to compete with other employees if you lack some of the basic education requirements they have. And I think this would hold true even in the disability websites we provided you above.

    So I would encourage you to look into taking that first step.

    Next I think it’s important for everyone to keep in mind how blessed they are to wake up everyday even if we have all these things against us. I know it sounds corny but when faced with huge obstacles against us, it’s important not to focus on them. It’s better to focus on what you have been able to achieve and the little victories we have everyday. From there it snowballs into bigger and more positive things that happen in your life.

    When we focus on the negatives we often miss the little opportunities that arise.

    I know I was very guilty of that for years. When I started changing my perception about my situations, things started to change for me. And it may be that the opportunities I started seeing were always there. But before because I was so focused on magnifying the negative things in my life it was impossible for me to see these gifts.

    So I would encourage you to do the same. Success in anything starts with our attitude then from there its about taking action. It doesn’t matter what has happened in our past, we all have to focus on what we want now and take action to get it even if it’s baby steps.

    So that’s my advice to you. It’s what I tell my family, friends and loved ones. As a visitor to my website you’re part of the WorkAtHomeNoScams.com family so I have to give you the same type of love. =)

    I hope some of this helped. I know it’s not necessarily the answer to making you money any faster but this advice is what I’ve followed and has changed my life.

    I too have been through a serious accident and had to leave a thriving business and all my possessions just to go back home and survive the ordeal of recuperating with my Elderly Mother- who had been in the same accident-out of state-with me. I have had to look at every single possible way to survive-then the economy has taken a dive and being now 55 doesn’t help (even though I don’t look it). I agree with Eddy-you have to be positive, thankful, everyday in strive for happiness. Things eventually will turn around, and keep trying, never, ever give up. We all become stronger through our struggles and someday we can help someone else just from our own understanding. You have the power to do anything you want to…forget the past, remember the lessons, and move onward and upward…it is the only way there is. You must be careful not to look back, or be reminded of the negative….that is the key look to the future, and stay focused on new beginnings and be excited about NOW! Good luck to you – get the GED and land yourself a great job at home.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com eddysalomon

    Hi Deborah,

    Thanks for chiming in and sharing your experience with us. You’ve definitely taken the right attitude about the whole situation and I’m happy that you can share that advice with Lisa.

    Everything you’ve said is spot on!

    Joel Osteen had this great analogy that I love telling people. He says life is like driving a car. The windshield is larger than the rear view window because you should be focusing on what’s ahead and not what’s behind you. I thought that was such a profound statement and what I try to live by and encourage others too as well.

    Again I know it all sounds really out there but it’s very true. As a native of the Bronx I’m really skeptical about these type of ideals but I have found it to be really true.

  • Wanda

    I am disabled and looking for work to do at home there so many scam out there they want you to pay for a job and I can;t afford to pay for a job I get a small check each month from the state and it not very much I barely make it on that so can you help me find a good work at home job so I can live a better job.
    Thank You

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com eddysalomon

    Hi Wanda,

    Thanks for posting. I feel your frustration.
    But you don’t have to pay for work at home jobs.
    Just use the websites for disabled people listed in the article above and you should be fine.

    In terms of avoiding scams it’s easy to do if you follow the steps listed in this video:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/scamvideo

    You can also find legitimate and free work at home companies on the following page:

    I hope this helps you get started and avoid scams.

    Hi, I thank you for all the words but I have tried for 5 long years to get my ged and no luck. Something in my brain isnt connecting for me. I have atleast a finished 10th grade level but goes no further. Its like my brain went on DUH mode and forgot all logic when it comes to learning the school stuff like 11th and 12th grade things. I dont know Im just gonna keep trying and see what happens for me.

  • Marie

    I would like some clarification. I was under the impression that if you were disabled and drawing SS disability, you could not work -at all-. Yet many on the site say they are disabled ,working and drawing SSI and getting SS Disability checks.
    Can you tell me how this is possible?
    I live in Tx and have fibromyalgia, DJD and other ailments and I have just started to see if I can qualify for SSD but was told I could not work at any job if I did . I am an RN , but can no longer do the work I did and not much of anything else without extreme fatigue. I do not know if I can survive on on SSD. Can you address this issue with Mystery shoppers and working with a disability and benefits.

    Thank you.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com eddysalomon

    Hi Marie,

    That’s actually a great question. My mother is disabled and always pestering me to find her a work at home job (LOL) but the problem is all the jobs I know of are “on the books”. So she can’t apply for them.

    So I’m not really sure how this would work unless there are different restrictions depending on where you live or the severity of your disability.

    I’m far from an expert so I couldn’t really tell you.
    You may want to try to contact the websites I listed in the article above to see if they can provide some clarification on how this works.

    Sorry, I wish I could provide more insight but this is out of my expertise.

    Anyone else out there that can chime in?

    Eddy

  • Shirley

    Hi Eddy I am also not an expert but I also recieve SSDI and you can work on still recieve benefits here in TX the amount is 14500 a month anything over that and they will start taking away from you. hope this helps!

  • Shirley

    I am so sorry I just realized my mistake! the amount is not 14500 now don’t get me wrong I will take this amount a month is I could! The amount here in tx is 1,450 I know disappointing but what do we exspect! thanks Eddy

    Hi Shirley,

    Thanks for sharing this info.

  • Sky

    Hi, Eddy. I am a Texan and on disability looking for legit work from home jobs. I have a success story for you, but I will share it with you another time. I just wanted to clear up the confusion about working while on SSDI.

    The maximum amount a person can make aside from their SSDI check is $900 a month gross. That’s still a good amount of money to have on top of that. (If you work from home make sure you take advantage of tax benefits.)

    And when you begin work they give you nine non-consecutive months to try out the job to see if it’s going to work out for you. Our government encourages disabled citizens to go back to work because it means more money in taxes coming in for the government.

    By the way, do you know if Panda Researh and Tik Tik Cash are legit paying companies? I have been doing surveys there, but I recently saw a complaint and if they are bogus, I want to stop immediately. Thanks for creating this site and helping us all out.

  • Jeanne

    I am like Marie. I have worked as an RN for 26 years and now have fibromyalgia and djd. I haven’t worked in 1 year but the retirement money is running out. I just came across your site but I have limited access to the internet. I am going to get a computer and attempt to make some money at home and apply for disability be cause I really don’t think I have the stamina to go back to work as a nurse. Any tips would be appreciated because until I get internet at home I don’t have time to go through each site. thanks

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com eddysalomon

    Hi Sky,

    Thanks for the additional SSDI information. This is great that we can all share what we know. I’m sure others are finding it helpful.

    In terms of the companies you mentioned, just do your research via our scam section: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/scams
    Just watch the video and you’ll be able to determine if you should pursue those companies.

    Now I will say this, one complaint doesn’t mean jack. Every company gets complaints. What you want to look for is a pattern of complaints, how they are resolved and if they’re resolved and finally the number of complaints. When looking at the complaints keep the size of the company in perspective. For instance Microsoft has sold millions if not billions of products. So if they had a few thousand complaints that’s nothing in the grand scheme of things. So
    just keep these factors in mind when doing your research.

    People are quick to call everything a scam related to work at home.

    My recommended list of top surveys are found on the following page: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/articles

    I would love to hear about your work at home success.
    Please share.

    Thanks.

    Hi Jeanne,

    The best thing to do is get your computer first.
    That is going to be your livelihood for working at home. Next side aside a lot of time to read through all the material on this site:

    All this material is designed to help you find various ways to work at home and more importantly avoid scams. Sometimes it may be a long read but trust me when I say it’s worth going through if you serious about working at home and avoiding scams.

    Good luck.

    Eddy

    P.S. My recommendations are listed in the articles and ask page.

  • Kathy

    Like many of the other people who left comments, I have a disability. The income from that, doesn’t even pay for food. If you follow through your links, they ask for money, which I don’t have (it’s only $39.99 – hurry we only have 3 jobs left). Most of the links are for sale or telemarketing which since I have some problem hearing, I’m unable to do. Affiliate websites are just the AmWay of the web, as far as I can tell. You pay for all of the bells and whistles and then they charge you for it. Medical transcription and tech jobs, if you have the thousands to get the education, MIGHT have some hope, if you already have the money to invest in more training. Surveys and “trying products” are, as far I can find out, are just a “hobby”. The government agencies DO NOT HAVE JOBS, they are there only for “training” (I found that out the hard way) and you have to PAY for it. Melwood might have jobs for developmentally disabilities, they probably won’t be reading your blog. Where are the “real jobs”? Did I miss them?

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com eddysalomon

    Hi Kathy,

    Thanks for chiming in. Based on your comments I can tell you’ve been at this for a while & unfortunately the process has beat you down and made you negative about the industry. Sadly that’s common and usually changes when people hang around here long enough. Fortunately for you, we’re solution oriented.

    So let me help you through this, because you made some statements that lead me to believe you really haven’t explored our content carefully.

    The fact of the matter is that we provide tons of opportunities that don’t cost you a dime that can be started right away. I’ve listed them below:

    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2008/08/11/make-money-finding-deals-on-the-web/

    I could list more but it would be to your benefit to take the time to review the various areas of our blog with an open mind at your leisure:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/work-at-home-reviews/
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/articles/
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/scams
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/ask

    In terms of the traditional jobs, I gather you’ve also missed the following pages:

    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/companies
    http://www.workathomecareers.com/help
    http://www.workathomecareers.com/workathomejobs
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2007/12/04/top-5-free-work-at-home-job-sites-for-2008/

    And finally I think you should read the following pages to help boost your spirit about finding work at home opportunities:

    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/success
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2008/03/03/only-lazy-people-try-to-make-money-at-home/

    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/freedom

    At the end of the day, people can easily achieve working at home if they don’t limit themselves to traditional jobs that aren’t readily available in large numbers. Sorry to say, that’s the reality of the situation. I could lie to you and say you’ll land a traditional work at home job tomorrow. But that’s a bunch of B.S. and that’s why you see we recommend things that aren’t traditional but are legitimate and are making people money.

    For some this is a God send, for others they prefer spending their lifetime trying to land that elusive traditional work at home job while making no money in the process. Either way the choice is ultimately yours.

    Our job here is to give you all your options. Some will fit you perfectly and some won’t. But the point is we’re giving you choices that you didn’t know exist to help you work at home sooner.

    So I hope as you read the site in detail you’ll be able to appreciate that effort like so many of our loyal subscribers.

    We’re not about limiting people to traditional work at home jobs because my years of experience has shown me, that they aren’t easy to land. But there are so many other free, available and legitimate non-traditional ways to make money at home if people don’t pigeon hold their potential.

    Hopefully you’ll see that in time. Because the alternative is to be bitter and not making money. And there are a lot of work at home seekers that are professionals in that field. I just hope that this won’t be your fate.

    Thanks again for your comments.

    I hope the material we’ve provided will help you get started.

    Take care.

    Eddy

  • Carole

    I have read all the comments and your plan for disabled to work at home. I would say wow! I am hard of hearing and have no money at all. I do really need money so bad . Since my husband has SSD and I’m not qualify for SSD, and SSI at all. I feel sorta trap. I also have a hard time finding a job. plus I sorta not able to do as job seeker because I take care of my grandkids a lot. I would love to do that kind of job to work at home. I do have this computer. What must I
    i do first to get start to work at home?

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com eddysalomon

    Hi Carole,

    Thanks for your kind words. But I think you sort of answered your own question already. Try using the resources listed in the article above. That would be my first step to determine what you have available to you.

    I think that is the best course of action for you. Hope this helps.

    Eddy

  • Cheryl

    Hi Eddy,
    How are you doing?
    I’m sorry to keep bugging you, but, I feel like a fool. I’ve been trying some of the surveys and they want me to order stuff to get paid. Is this how they all work? If so I’m going to have to try another route, cause I don’t have money barely to eat and cloth my family. Let alone spend money to make money! I’m not complaining to you, just mad at myself for not understanding.(that’s how I got scamed last time). Please let me know what’s up. My family has been picking on me, not ina good way, for trying diffrent stuff till I find one that I can do.
    Thanks AGAIN for your time, Cheryl

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com eddysalomon

    Hi Cheryl,

    No worries. I think you’re actually getting involved in get paid to try programs which are a great way to make money and you don’t always have to do with paid offers: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2008/05/07/getpaidtotryoffers/

    What you want to do is go directly to the survey companies and take the get paid offer website middle man out the equation. Some of our best survey companies are found on the following page:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2007/12/13/top-5-paid-online-survey-websites/

    and they don’t involve trying products to get paid. It’s just straight survey taking. My favorite is My Survey which will be found on the page above.

    You may also want to look into focus groups:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2008/01/08/focus-groups-got-paid-150/

    I hope this clears things up for you you.

    Good luck,

    Eddy

  • Carole

    Wow! I can certainly agree one thing about what you said earlier in the comment that you told others. The one thing is A LOT, ALOT, ALOT OF READING!!! I will continue to read and and check out one at a time and if things are looking good — I will let you know!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com eddysalomon

    Hi Carole,

    LOL yes there is a lot of reading. But the more reading you do, the closer you are to working at home. I found when I use to just skim through things I missed out on a lot of non-traditional ways to make money. But when I did started reading through sites that provided helpful tips and recommendations, I made money.

    And as many of you know, I now work at home full time.
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/freedom
    Not many people can say that and that should tell you a lot. So read away. I know it may seem very time consuming but trust me when I say you find a lot of diamonds in the rough when you read.

    Good luck.

    Eddy

  • Nancy

    I’m amazed at the info you have here. Keep up the good work.

    There is a lot of misconception about SS, SSI and SS Disability. I suggest that people go to http://www.socialsecurity.gov and check all of the info that pertains to them.

    My husband was on SS disability and a couple of years later I had to go on disability. They automatically stopped my husband’s disability pay. When I called SS they told me only one person per family could draw disability.

    I asked if there was another way for my husband to get paid because we just could not make it on my pay. They told me he could draw SS, so we signed him up for that. They never would have volunteered the info. I had to ask them.

    I’ve talked to several people where both the man and wife were drawing SS disability, but I don’t know how they got it.

    The best thing to do is to call Social Security and ask all the questions you can think of. After all, they are there for us. If you get someone who is rude or not knowledgable, just call back ang get a different person.

    Also, make sure you go to the Department of Human Services (DHS) and apply for everything. Make sure you ask them for other agencies that can help you. They do have information for extra help, although they don’t usually tell you about them unless you ask.

    Sorry this is so long, but having been there and knowing how difficult it is, I want to help everyone I can. A very caring person helped me and I want to pass it on.

    Thanks,
    Nancy

    Hello, I am Ericka, and I am so pleased to find out that your site gives info to the disabled. I am completely blind, and have a bachelor’s degree in human services. I graduated last year, and I still haven’t landed a good job yet. Lately, I have been trying to find something that I can do from home to provide some extra finances to this household because my fiance can’t continue to do it alone with help of the small amount I receive in SSI benefits. I am excellent on the phone, but I do not like telemarketing, and I am an excellent typist and computer user. I volunteer as a crisis counselor as well, but I need some money, b.c the bills don’t stop because I got laid off and cant find another job to pay them with

    Hi Callie,

    Thanks for providing another company for our disabled friends.
    I am sure they’ll appreciate this! As always you’re an asset to this blog!

    Eddy

  • Callie

    Thank you Eddy,

    I am always more than happy to help.

  • Nancy

    Thought I would add something else I just found out. If you are drawing SS or SS disability and it is less than $1,011 per month you can call Social Security and apply for SSI. They will send you a check each month that will make your income equal to $1,011. That’s not much for a family. But it’s more than some of you are getting. This is another thing they don’t volunteer. You have to ask for it.

    I’m checking out some of your sites and I am very impressed. You are doing a great job.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com eddysalomon

    Hi Nancy,

    Thanks for the kind words. We really appreciate them.
    And thank you for more of this information. The one thing I’ve learned about life is that if you don’t ask, don’t assume people will tell you because chances are they won’t especially when dealing with government agencies! My wife is a social worker in a school in the Bronx and she’s always giving her students information about the system that isn’t told to them. She’s even caught some government workers lying to her students about their rights.

    So always ask around and get several opinions to verify if what is being told to you is true. It’s amazing how one person will say one thing and another will say the opposite. Usually after speaking to a few people you find out the truth.

    It’s a dang shame that we even have to go through that but that’s life.

  • Bob

    I love reading your blog, it has helped me in my search to find a work at home job. Like the rest of these people who have replied, I too am disabled. I recently was released after spending two years in hospitals. I was a programmer before I had to go in the hospital. I am now paralysed and wheelchair bound. I need help to do most things. I would think being a as400 programmer that I could get a telecommuting job. I have looked and looked and looked for a RPG job I could do from home but I’ve been unable to find anything. I haven’t even been asked to send my resume. I would do anything that would bring in some money to help with the bills. All I see are the jobs that everyone says to avoid. I hear about contract, telecommute, freelance jobs but I haven’t had any luck finding them. I’m hoping you can head me in the right direction. I would be so grateful for your help. Bob

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com eddysalomon

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks for your kind words. I’m glad you enjoy our little blog.

    I think your programming skills should really give you an advantage. So don’t give up. There are a lot of freelance websites looking for programmers.
    Visit our international page where we list several sites:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/international

    I think it would be a good place to start.

    Just understand that traditional work at home jobs take a long time to land. But at least you have the skills that are in demand. So its just a matter of time. In the mean time try some of the other recommended opportunities we list on the following page:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/articles to get some income flowing in.

    Hope this helps.

  • John Wilding

    Hi eddy i am john i am disabled age 59 and been disabled for the last 12 years with lower back dics moved due to a fall. Now iam looking for somthing i can do from home. I am new to using a computer and finding it hard to under stand whats what and that. Also i am not very good at speelling and i have been doing a bit of surveys but i have not got anything from them. PS Can you help me or advise me on what to do. THANKYOU

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi John,

    Thanks for contacting me.
    The first thing you should do is look into some the sites we listed in the article above that help folks like yourself acquire a work at home job. I’ll list them again for your reference:
    http://www.nticentral.org/
    http://www.lift-inc.org/
    http://www.dol.gov/odep/index.htm
    http://www.jan.wvu.edu/links/employ.htm
    http://www.melwood.com/

    See what they can offer you or if they can direct you to the right folks that can help.
    I would also encourage you to get more practice with your computer since it’s going to be a huge tool that you’ll need to work at home, doing research to avoid scams, etc. It’s probably the first thing I would do. If you’re able to get around, try taking some classes. If not, try taking some online classes. Or just do searches in google for free online classes on using a computer or free online classes on using the internet. Youtube.com also has a lot of free instructional videos.

    We’ve created a scam video on the following page:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/scams you should probably watch to avoid any possible scams that you will probably run into as you’re looking for work at home.

    Our ask page is also great source of information:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/ask

    We also created an easy 3 step guide on the following page:
    http://www.workathomecareers.com/help

    So you have some reading to do. The best way to succeed at working at home is to be educated in the various aspect of the industry. It will save you a lot of headaches and mistakes. But you have to be willing to read a lot. And we have tons of information on this site.
    But start with some of the pages we listed above.

    Ultimately mastering your computer and internet skills is the first thing you need to focus on before anything else.

    I hope this helps.

    Can anyone tell me if this webpage is for Canadian residence? I am a person with a disability and need to work from home.

    Thanks in advance

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Juice,

    My suggestion is to try to visit the sites we mentioned above even if they don’t cater to Canadians. They may know of sites that may be in your area. You won’t know unless you visit them and ask.
    You might also want to check our international page: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/international

    Hi,
    I’m looking for an online job, but I have no money whatsoever to put into it right now. I have epilepsy and I can’t drive anymore. I’m 43 years old and it is just about to kill me having absolutely no money coming in. I do have bills and I think they are fixing to take my land from me since I have’nt been able to pay them anything in almost 3 months. Please let me know what is the best thing I can do.
    Donna

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Donna,

    If you’re officially disabled then use the websites we listed in the article above and see if they can help you with a job.
    In terms of folks trying to take your land. You may need to talk to the people that manage your mortgage. Banks
    aren’t really all that enthusiastic to be foreclosing on people because they can’t really easily sell that stuff anymore.
    So try calling your bank and working something out. You would be surprised how accommodating they are now.

    If you’re not disabled then check out the work at home guide we created on the following page:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/workathomeguide
    It will give you everything you need to know to find a work at home job or opportunity. It will
    also guide you on how to avoid scams.

    Between the article above and the guide, you have all the information you need. But you need to actually go through it all
    for it to be useful.

  • Donna

    Eddy,
    Just to let you know. If you are having seisures all the time, there are not many (if any) places that are going to hire you. Therefore I believe I am disabled. Thank you for the information that you gave me.
    Donna

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Understood. But my mother felt she was disabled but the government didn’t think so until it was confirmed by a doctor and then submitted to the government which
    then gave her the designation of disabled which qualified her for certain benefits and programs like the sites that cater to the disabled listed above.
    So certain programs will need an official designation if you don’t have one already. But based on the severity of your condition, I’m assuming you do have one which
    should qualify you for the help from the sites listed in the article.

    @Gill Miles:
    @Bob:and all that it can help!
    Please feel free to check out where I work-I was working when I stumbled on to this site. If you have and can use a computer, scanner, printer and phone, I can hook you up. They are a TICKET TO WORK employment network associated company with the SSA. I love it, they train you at home too. I got in on the ground floor and they are filled up with the main people, but part of my training in HR is to get 5 people hired, so you would have to go through me at aikenbethany@yahoo.com. BUT don’t fret- there are so many EN’s on this program-check it out – if you are on disability you can work and keep your benefits too! Wish you all the best!

  • Starr

    I wish I could say I was put on ssi or disability, but was denied. they said my nervous break down wasn’t a good enough reason to be put on disability. what they don’t tell you when you graduate from college and start your first “real world job” is weather or not to disclose your disabilities, and if those will hinder your ability to find a job. it took me over a year to find my first one, which wasn’t a right fit, and now this one- caused (largely because it’s a toxic work environment) me to have a complete meltdown at work on my lunchbreak. I have Major depression, fibromyalgia, ptsd, ocd (compulsive picking disorder), ADHD, panic attacks, Borderline personality disorder, rotational Scoliosis in my neck and lower back (that got so bad I actually have shrunk in height), and other problems. Suffice it to say, I have called my local BVR, and talked about it extensively with my therapist and psychiatrist. Now all I need to do is have a new primary care physician to back it up and I should be set, right? LOL. that is if my job decides to not fire me for calling off because of a bad fibro flare up- it was so bad I couldn’t sleep even with percocet and robaxin, and a 25mg of rozerum. I woke up and it felt like my whole body was dipped in an acid bath, and on fire. I’m in so much pain, and I’m so damn tired. I wish people realized that this isn’t in our heads. Even my mom said to me this morning, I think this is tied to your emotional stuff and you need to recognize that. OK. whatever. I’m emotionally hurting. Right. Please. step into my body for 10 minutes, then say that. guh. anyway, thanks for these great resources. Any links or suggestions for someone in the NE area, like OHIO, NY, Pennsylvania area? I called our local BVR and they took my info and said “we’re sending you a pamphlet, aka=-”we’ll be in touch” well if I lose my job, that’s not gonna cut it. I suppose I could look at it as a blessing in disguise, considering how much I loath the job, but I need the income to pay my car payments and other bills. not to meantion my health benefits. I’m in deep mega trouble without those….

    Found your website through an article on Ive tried that…bravo. To all of you pwd’s out there harass your state vocational rehabilitation to check out this website and others that promote home based work. I have a small business processing medical claims at home and have been doing it for 10 years! I got my doctors because someone helped me get my first job. I have had 5 doctors and now I am down to one! Health care might not be as recession proof as you think! Anyhow legitimate work at home jobs are hard to find! I too have 3 degrees and can only type by using a mouth stick..takes me awhile but I get it done! Going to contact the ticket to work folks and check this out…thanks for being here all this stuff on the web and sooooo much to find it!

You just need to ride the wave until then. But in the mean time, the resources in the article above should help. Good luck & thanks for stopping by and chiming in. We appreciate it. Keep us updated.

  • Tamra Nofsinger

    Dear Mr. Solomon,
    I want to say a big “THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU” for this posting of jobs for the disabled! I am on supplemental SSI because of my back. I have had 3 major back surgeries and am still not able to work full time. My Dr. said if he has to operate on me one more time I will more than likely be paralyzed! No fun! But, I have been looking for a part-time job that I can do at home to where if I have to, I can lay down with my back. I am always in pain! I wish I never had a back problem. A long time ago when my back was in good condition after my 1st operation, I was working 3 jobs! I had 2 part time ones and a full time midnight job! I worked them all for 3 months, then quit one of the part time jobs. Then, I worked the other 2 for 3 more months, then the one part time business went out of business. Then, I just worked the full time job until I had my baby at the time. I love to work, and if I was able, I would probably have 3 jobs again!!!! But, my back keeps me down now. But, when you sent me this post on my email, I was thrilled!!!!! I am going to apply for a part time job on these websites you posted! THANK YOU SO MUCH AGAIN!!!!!!! I REALLY APPRECIATE IT!!!!! If you happen to find anymore of these websites, please email me and let me know!

    Sincerely,
    Tamra

    Hello to all my name is Dora Jackson and I have a disablity, but I repeat I have a disability but there is nothing wrong with my brain, I have been searching for several months trying to find something legit to do at home, but no luck any help I can get would be appreciate. I live alone and my check is not enough to cover my bills and I am not looking for a hand out I just need some help. Any suggestion would be appreciation. I have seen every web sight people calling my house asking for money that I don’t have. The majority of work at home are all scams I have lost a few dollars that I couldn’t afford from people that promised to help.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Dora,

    My suggestion is to read the article above and try using the links I provided that are specifically for good people like yourself that are disabled but want to work. It’s the whole reason I wrote the article. lol
    In terms of scams, they are also easy to avoid. Visit the following page: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/scams and watch the video listed there. You can apply that to any company and avoid a lot of problems that way.
    If you actually take the time to read about the other scams listed there and the comments you’ll have a wealth of information that will help you. At the end of the day, everything you need is on this site. It’s just a matter of actually
    reading it and applying it.

    Good luck.

  • Mary

    I too am looking for work at home. I have been scammed several times. I know in California that I can earn up to $960.00 a month above my current income through SSDI. The deal is that the state considers you independant at that time. Who can live on that?? So, am looking for something that I can just live a little more comfortably. Like not have to go to the food bank. Was wonderful to find this site. I intend to check out the sites listed above. Unfortunately, I can’t afford a dish to not be on dial up, so try to restrict my time. Also have a hard time watching videos because of my connection. I don’t want much, just something legit. Thanks again for this site. Hope you reply. Then I will know this is for real!! Mary.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Mary,

    Sorry to hear about your experiences. But being scammed while searching for work at home is like a right of passage
    we all go through. Just don’t let it jade you and dissuade you from your goals. It should be used as fuel to succeed. In any event,
    your first step is to actually check out the links in the article. They will help you.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but having dial up is a huge disadvantage in this day and age. So many opportunities and job require high speed for work, to watching videos, etc. So I’m not really sure how good your chances of landing a job will be. Maybe you can visit your local library or any facilities that have free high speed internet access and try do some of your surfing and work there. But truth be told, high speed internet access is one the basic requirements for most of the opportunities.

    I wish I could be of more assistance but my hands are sort of tied in this situation. Sorry.

    P.S. Yes I am real and so are all the comments on the site, good and bad. I know there are a lot of fake blogs and sites out there. We’re not one of them. ;)

  • Jill

    You should try contractxchange. They are a real good company to work for. It is phone work that is why I am not working for them because I have small kids. You will need high speed internet. I would really suggest contractxchange for people really needing work. They respond quickly to your application. They are always hiring for companies like Shopping Channel etc.

  • Pamada

    I was a former secretary. I was diagnosed as having Myasthenia Gravis. I am unable to work long. Every four hours I have to take a tablet to gain strength. The medication is expensive.My brother who supported me died of cancer recently and I want find some way to support my medical expenses. Hence, looking for a free subscription online job. preferably typing organising data entry etc. Thank you.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Pamada,

    If you’re disabled then just following the advice in the article you read above is the first step. If not visit the companies page: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/companies
    This whole site is free. We post jobs every Friday. In fact we just did so: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2009/09/24/new-work-at-home-leads-for-09-25-09/ There are also jobs on the right of the page under the job listings area that are also free. So everything you need is already on this site. It’s just a matter of reading it.

    Good luck.

  • Mary

    Thanks for the information. I am currently trying to find something that doen’t take alot of online time until I get a little ahead & can get the dish for my highspeed. Others in my area can use AT&T or our local cable company for highspeed, but I guess because I live in an older mobile home park, it simply isn’t available. My telephone is AT&T, so don’t understand why I can receive their service & not highspeed. I am trying to find assembly work or packaging work that doesn’t rely on my spending too much time online until I get that dish which is only around $70.00 a month, but alot when you don’t have it! My boyfriend has just moved out with me because I have just gotten to the point that caring for my space is too much, especially in winter. With all the leaves & tending the woodstove, my legs aren’t happy & my balance is getting worse, so am afraid of falling onto the woodstove. Maybe in a few months we can afford that dish. Thanks for your support & this site for those of us like me. I don’t even drive often at all because I am afraid with my numb feet, I can’t feel the pedals well & don’t want to cause an accident. So, I am just soldiering on!!

  • Scott Meckley

    I was born with spinabifida. The doctors though couldn’t figure out what i had. When i was 19 I went to a chiropractor and he is the one that found that i have it. My spinabifida and my hand muscle coordination causes struggles with my jobs with the excpetion of my current job. The only problem with my current job is it is only 10-15 hours a week and the only reason i barely get by is because i don’t have a truck payment. The problem with most jobs is that they are too physically strainous or so extremly stressful that i would have a nervous breakdown working in a fast food joint. I am involved with two MLMS and it’s very difficult to sell stuff to people. I need a job that i can do from home that is real and legit. If they had a job to where you fold inserts and maybe put them into envelopes for a company (like Sears not that i think sears has that) then i’d do that. I also don’t get treated the same as everyone else when they find out you have a disablility and also it takes me longer to learn a job. The thing is though when i learn the job i don’t get the same respect as someone who learned it quickly because i’m not a corporate kissup. I’ll be nice but i won’t be extra nice to a boss just to get a bigger and better raise. i was looking into LiveOps and West At Home but the problem i have is I have to have high speed internet and i only have dialup. I even tried and talk to a local place in town and i can’t get faster internet where I live. another problem i run into is some places want you to take a survey which is fine but afterwards they want you to purchase a product. If anyone knows of a real and legit home based job that don’t cost a lot and can help me make some money from home and i don’t need a fast internet connection to do it let me know.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Scott,

    Thanks for sharing your story with me. I can’t even imagine what you’ve gone through. But it’s admirable that you’re pushing forward and still looking to do things that will better your life. Let me address some of the things you’ve mentioned.
    1. I’m not big on MLMs because you’re usually selling stuff people don’t want or need. You even end buying the products you don’t want or need all for the hope of making money. I can’t say all MLMs work this way. But in my experience many do so it doesn’t surprise me the experience you had. Many do.

    2. There are no such thing as envelope stuffing jobs. That’s a common myth. This leads me to believe you aren’t really familiar with my scam section: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/scams
    Before you do anything else, head over there and read that page from top to bottom including the video, articles and comments. You’ll learn a great deal about this industry and will avoid a lot of common scams. Trust me when I say you’ll be in a better situation if you take the time to do that.

    3. Real surveys don’t require that you buy anything. Sounds like you might be confusing get paid to try offers. Read the following articles to clear this up:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2007/12/13/top-5-paid-online-survey-websites/
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2007/08/21/paid-surveys-online-are-they-all-scams/
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2008/03/10/if-you-dont-work-for-this-company-youll-kick-yourself-later/
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2008/05/07/getpaidtotryoffers/

    And finally High speed internet is a basic requirement for most work at home jobs or opportunities. So unfortunately you’re severely limited with your options. I wish I had better news in that respect but I really don’t.
    You may want to try some of the non-traditional opportunities listed on the following page: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations The amazon opportunity listed there may be a good start for you. You should also give some of the links in the above article a try since they’re meant to help people work at home that have disabilities.

    In any event, I hope this helps. I wish I could provide you with more options but my hands are sort of tied in this situation.

  • Mary

    Hi, Eddy. Just to let you know that I came across a program that i can afford. It is through a cable company that has expanded into phones & internet.
    The only package is 3 meg, but my telephone won’t be busy when i am using the computer & should be much faster. They are coming to install it tomorrow, so I will have to notify everyone of my new email address. Now to find some work! This site is an inspiration!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    That’s great news Mary! I use my cable company for my phone and internet usage as well and it’s great! It never occurred to me to suggest that. I just made the assumption that everyone has explored that option or is already on it. I won’t make that mistake anymore. lol I thank you for teaching me something today Mary. It’s wonderful when we all can learn things together. I’m very excited for you. At least technology won’t be a limiting factor now. So congrats!

  • Mary

    Well, as it turns out, this morning I received a call from my local cable service ( I had been speaking to someone in Texas) just to be informed that, no, my cable company doesn’t have any internet in my mobile home park. But, at least I put a new idea out there. It is odd that I have AT&T for my phone, but no internet is available. As the crow flies, my friend gets their internet with the same cable company I was dealing with, so am still on dial-up. Am going to aggressively look for something I can afford while continuing to look for work. This is the “cost” of living in a beautiful rural area. My current internet company just sent out info on a new excellorator they have, but for some reason, my computer doesn’t operate with it. Just another setback & I am used to those. Once again, thanks for the support.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    I’m sorry to hear about the cable company internet situation. But you’re right you did help put the idea out there for others. So that is good. Hopefully in time high speed internet will be available in all areas. A great nation like this should have things like this in place as well as other services that every American should have the right to. In any event, you have a great attitude and I’m glad you’re pushing forward and won’t take this set back. It’s that type of attitude that leads to success. So keep at it.

    This is a good resource not only for job ideas but also for services for folks who have a disability.

    I too have a disability and am doing all I can to stay above water, if you will. I have been paid well in the past by a few paid survey companies. Synovate is one, Nelson is another, and Harris have all paid well. It’s just a little something on the side that comes in a few times a year. I’m investigating more of these companies. PineCone Research may be a possibility, but I can’t say for sure. For those who have low vision or use screen readers, some survey websites are more accessible than others.

    @Sarah Bosse:

    Hi Sarah,

    I wanted to again make mention of a couple of very good income from home resources exclusively for the disabled that you may, or may not have been aware of. One is a Virtual Call Center position, and the other is a mystery shopping & market research program.

    Previous thread posts were made about each (one almost a year ago). We’ve all slept many nights since then, lol. And, it’s also very easy to sometimes overlook information.

    With that being said, here they are:

    1. Overflow – (Virtual Call Center Agents) –
    http://www.workathomecareers.com/workathomejobs/view.php?id=5247&page=0&cat= Link has been updated from previous post.

    2. ABILITY – (Mystery Shopping & Market Research) –
    http://www.workathomecareers.com/workathomejobs/view.php?id=5251&page=0&cat=36

    If you were not already aware of these two resources, I hope they can help.

    Hi Eddy,
    What my problem is, is I have epilepsy. That is why I can’t go out and get a job. I never know when I’m going to have a siezure. I feel like I could do anything from home without a problem. The problem is, I don’t have the money people are asking for, just to get started. Are there any jobs out there that you don’t have to pay anything to get started? I’ve looked and looked and can’t find anything.
    Donna

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Donna,

    Have you tried reading the article above and giving the suggestions there a try?
    A few comments before yours Callie also provided some good leads. Everything you need is here on this blog and it’s free, it’s just a matter of reading it.

    Hope this helps.

    Good luck.

  • dora

    Desperate in st. louis, while surfing the net for the last three or four days I found a web sight that may or may not help us to help ourself it’s call disability digest. please check it out and see what you think. Any comment or suggestion would be greatful and appreciated.

  • http://www.surveyfavs.com/new_programs Callie

    @dora:

    Hi Dora,

    My understanding of Disability Digest is a guide to helping one cope with his/her disability. And a resource to assist with a variety of disability related matters; including how to start a business with zero investment. So, if these are the kinds of things you’re interested in, Disability Digest might be helpful, and it’s a free resource.

    However, in reading your post, it’s not clear if you are needing assistant in those areas, or if you’re looking for legitimate ways to earn income as a disabled individual.

    If you are searching for ways to make money from home as a disabled individual, you are in the right place ;)

    If you would scroll up a ways, within Eddy’s article he has compiled a list of disabled friendly work at home job related resources. In addition, you may want to also check out:

    Overflow – http://www.workathomecareers.com/workathomejobs/view.php?id=5247&page=0&cat= Which is an exclusive Virtual Call Center Agent position for seniors and those with disabilities.

    and …

    ABILITY – Mystery Shopping & Market Research for the disabled.
    http://www.workathomecareers.com/workathomejobs/view.php?id=5251&page=0&cat=36

  • Cindy Prior

    Hi. I am an LPN of 24 years and am in the process of getting my AA degree in Nursing that would make me an RN. After starting school to get my are I found I have to herniated discs in my lumbar region and some spianl stenosis. This will limit me from working the floor as a nurse, which I love to do. I am now looking at my options and am not sure where to go or what to do. I have not tried to apply for disability at this time because I can walk and do things, I just cannot bend over far or lift anything now. Sitting does not hurt as long as it is not for extended periods. Are there jobs that a nurse can do from home? I am very organized when it comes to my work and I love working with people.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Cindy,

    Ironically I do see a lot of work at home jobs for nurses. I think they’re called case managers or something to that effect. I’ll be sure to include them this coming Friday on my weekly posts if I can find them. I didn’t think there would be a demand but reading your comments just reinforces the statement you just never know. So if I can find any, they’ll be listed in upcoming job leads. So as long as you’re subscriber, you’ll know: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/subscribe

  • http://TrulyGodsGrace.wordpress.com Sarah Bosse

    I have some great news! I made it through NTI’s testing and first round of interviews. And now I’m on the “wait list” for a job to open up that matches my qualities. I am very excited because I see this as a way to make ends meet (much better than they have been “meeting” for the last two years or so). Eddy, thanks for this post. Please continue to post on this topic! There are a lot of us who have disabilities who would do well working from home, but finding the resources can be difficult. If you are interested, Eddy, and all works out well on my end with NTI…I would be glad to write a short review of the company after I’ve worked for them for a few months. Just let me know!

    This website, workathomenoscams.com, has been a lifesaver for me and has kept me away from a lot of potential scams. I’ve learned so much and have been able to pass the info on to friends and others. THANK YOU!

  • http://www.jlodge.com/careers/ Allison

    About 2 yrs ago my life turn completely upside down. I had been a professional reaching for the stars so to speak. Then illness left me with several disabilities that brought my career to a screeching halt. Trying to recover left me without my career and life I once known.

    I not only found myself in the midst of an economic downfall, but, newly added personal challenges as I sought employment. I wanted to let you know I found a company called J.Lodge out of Ft Meyer, Fl. I was so thankful I found this job working from home…so far I have been pretty happy. I am not sure you know about them.. so I wanted to let you know about this company. People can apply thru their website at http://www.jlodge.com/careers/ I can answer some questions..but the websit is a good place to seek add’l info. Allison

  • http://www.jlodge.com/careers Sharon Proellochs

    Despite the economic forecasts that still show job losses set to climb even higher, there are a few companies that are still experiencing growth. The J. Lodge Corporation, a quality call services company, has sustained profitability since 1999 and accredits its success solely to its unique employee model that consists of disabled business Americans. While other companies are outsourcing their jobs to foreign competitors, J.Lodge is striving to provide part-time careers for individuals who are interested in our company and who qualify for our positions. If anyone is interested please visit: http://www.jlodge.com/careers

    I am disabled and have been since August 2000. This is the first job I have been able to find that I can do from home. I found real at home work and you can too… Please go to the website and click on Employment at top and then click on Apply. It’s that simple. Hope to be your co-worker soon!!!!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Thanks for sharing this company Sharon. It’s always great to have another legitimate work at home job resource for our disabled audience. These folks still have a lot to offer society

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi James,

    Thanks for sharing your story with me. I’m so sorry to hear what has happened to you. But try to keep your spirits up. Many of the folks that have visited this site have been scammed numerous times including yours truly. It’s sort of a right of passage in this industry. However it’s how you deal with these experiences that will shape your future. For instance I was scammed and decided that I never wanted this to happen to other people so it lead me to creating my sites.

    Others have learned from the experience and learned a new set of research skills that assisted them in avoiding other scams. See my scam video if you haven’t already:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/scams

    So it’s a matter of taking lemons and making lemonades. I think applying for disability is definitely a good start. Once you get that designation you can qualify for some of the companies listed in the article above and the ones mentioned in the comments. So that’s your first course of action. Once that’s in place it will give you some more options. In the mean time you may also want to visit the following pages: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/companies
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/category/work-from-home-job-leads/

    Just don’t let these scam artist beat you down. In fact use them a source of fire to succeed despite their efforts. Trust me you can succeed at this. If you don’t believe me read some of the comments listed here:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2009/11/10/work-at-home-no-scams-120-birthday-giveaway/ If these folks can do it, so can you!

    I hope this helps.

  • JJpoe

    I just found you online today and read your article about disability having a hard time looking for work. I was really happy to find this article. Because I’m going through a really hard time right now, I was in the midde of looking for a job and it was a really bad rain storm, I went to my sister in law to use her internet, and as I stepped up onto her front porch I slipped and ended up with a compound fracture of my left ankle. Ever since It’s been really hard trying to find some sort of extra income to help pay for food, mortage and bills, and now medical bills that just keeps building up. The only income coming into our new home is my huband’s. But his job isn’t enough to keep up what we need. especially now that I can’t do a lot right now. I’ve been looking for at home jobs and most of them require a fee or a payment for a starting kit or a memebership fee that is 80 bucks a month. After a while I finally found your article and its giving me some hope and hope to find something that I can do till I am back on my feet again. Thank you so much and bless you for this article.

  • Lenora

    Hi Eddy! Thankyou so much for all the positive info on work at home for disabled people. I am not able to work outside the home anymore and these sites will help me a lot. again, Thanks for being there for all of us.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Lenora,

    You’re quite welcome! I hope the information does help you.

  • Mary

    hey, Eddie. It’s me, again. I listened to your video about medical transcription. I looked into that a long time ago & decided that it was something I could not do because in my research, yes, I would receive the training, but a person usually has to spend one week or more in a doctors office learning the ropes. Unfortunately, I am not physically able to do that. Also, don’t know if I mentioned this before, I suffer from social anxiety. It is all I can do to go to the grocery store. So, with my periferal neuropathy, the fact I don’t drive, & the kicker, not being able to be around people for any length of time, it’s a no go for me. Have been looking, to no avail as of yet for something. I really appreciate the support you give to all of us on this site. I never did receive your personal email, although the others came through with no problem. I now am more desperate to find a few hundred more a month so I can pay for the silly satilitte. Significant other is moving out. We just snark at each other because we both are in chronic pain. It is not a contest. We hurt & it has hurt us. Please reply. Thanks.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi again Mary,
    You might want to read my medical transcription article listed here: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/typing
    The company I listed there for training can help you with job placement and it would be a work at home job and not require you to be in an office as you implied. So you may want to actually contact them for more details about that before making any assumptions.

    I would encourage you to keep looking. Every day new leads are posted on my other site: http://www.workathomecareers.com and every friday we post new leads on this blog: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/category/work-from-home-job-leads So something is bound to come up for you. It’s just a matter of patience and being persistent. Folks are successful and if you need some inspiration you may want to read the following pages:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2009/11/10/work-at-home-no-scams-120-birthday-giveaway/
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2009/12/04/belated-thanksgiving-message-new-leads/

    Until you find the right opportunity that can give you the money you want, there are a mess of little opportunities that can bring in some money:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations

    What you’ll notice with many of the success stories is that many of these folks took the path less traveled and made some money with non-traditional work at home opportunities. Then eventually found a work at home job that paid more. But they started with things that did bring in some money no matter how small it may be. So you have options. It’s just a mater of taking action on them.

    In any event, I hope things get better for you in the new year. But you have to set in your mind that they will. Make a pledge to yourself that 2010 will be different. But you have to believe that and take actions to make that happen. Life changing moments come with a decision then they come to life with action. Sometimes people and situations change because it was meant to be so you can experience better things. So keep that in mind.

    Hope this helps.

    P.S. Not really sure what’s going on with the email.

  • Lenora

    Hi Again Eddy: Just wanted to thank you again for the web sites that don’t require any money to get started making money. I do have a lot of books I can make money on. I thankyou so much. I am so glad I found this site. You are very helpful. My husband and I are both disabled and I haven’t been able to work since February of this year. I have been searching all this time for a work at home job. Again thanks, and Keep up the good work!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    You’re welcome Lenora.
    Glad I can provide you some options. Hopefully something will work out for you and your husband. There is a lot of different ways to make money at home and the goal is to expose as many of them to you folks. There is this misconception that everything is a scam and you always need money. But you spend enough time here and you’ll see that’s not neccessarily the case. Good luck to you and your husband.

  • http://workathomenoscams.com Melissa

    Hi Eddy. My name is Melissa. I am a 32 year old with epliespy. I was formerly on SSI, but I had my benefits taken from me because my husband made too much monthly income. I have been searching for months for a good, flexible work at home job that would employ a young, educated woman like myself. I find that most (if not all) employers, look at me as a liability to their company. So I do not even get I chance to put my foot in the door. And of course, I have fallen for the SCAMS! I now frequent this website for how honest you are. Can you please give me some ideas as to companies who welcome hardworking, disabled employees. Because if I where to find the right job, I would give my all.

    Hi Eddy, Mary here again. Just wanted to let you know that I did take a blogging opportunity. The buy-in was pricey for me. They had a 90 day money back gauarentee, but when I called to get my money back, was told that I could earn it back. So, although the site in my opinion misreprestented itself, I decided ok fine. I’m going to do my best, have always loved writing, am giving it a go. I can control my income and when my computer skills get better, this does sound feasible. I have already earned $35.00 over the course of just under two weeks. Have been bumped up to be able to earn more, so if I can grab 2 assignments a day, that is $200.00 amonth which more than makes the payment for the satelitte dish. Am hanging in, and hanging on. Staying positive! Am so greatful for your site!

  • http://TrulyGodsGrace.wordpress.com Sarah Bosse

    @Sarah Bosse:
    Hi Folks! In October of 2009 I posted a comment on this page referring to the fact that I made it through the first round of interviews. Well, I made it through the second round as well and through the final round with a company that is staffed with NTI employees. I have been working now for three full weeks at my new job (from home!) and really loving it! So first, I’ll give you a quick idea of what NTI is all about. Then, I’ll tell you my impressions of my new job!

    NTI, the National Telecommuting Institute, is a NPO that hires only people who have a disability that either makes it impossible for them to work outside of their house or highly beneficial for them to work from home. Because the work through NTI is all tele-work, you must have a clear, loud, and somewhat pleasant voice. Using screen-readers or voice transcription software would be very difficult if not impossible for those who need such devices to be able to work. A very quiet home office is required.

    Additionally, if you’re interested in working through NTI, you must have a doctor-documented disability. While about 90% of the people working for NTI also are receiving SSI/SSDI, this is not a requirement for you to work for NTI (I, for one, don’t yet receive SSDI). You MUST, however, either have a Ticket To Work (http://www.yourtickettowork.com/program_info) or a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor and an Active Case (VR is state-run, so check your state’s website or call your local DHHS office for more information). If you meet these basic requirements and you’re a hard worker, then your chances are pretty good of getting employed. You may need to purchase some home office equipment. Vocational Rehab can help you with the purchase, but don’t expect it to take any less than one full year before you see any of it….(I still haven’t received the equipment promised by VR!). So be ready to make do with what you have and whatever you can get your hands on.

    So, what’s the idea behind NTI? Well, NTI doesn’t make money itself. They are a Non-Profit-Organization and I believe that any money they do make actually goes back into operating costs. It’s not cheap for NTI to hire an employee. And if NTI selects you and VR agrees, VR has to pay THOUSANDS of dollars to NTI for your “training” and such. Of course, the VR money is actually federal grant monies that are filtered down through to each of the states. So, in the grand scheme of things, it’s taxpayer money that makes NTI possible.

    Okay…so now that that part is covered…. There are several chains of command, if you will, when it comes to working through NTI. I say “working through” NTI because you’re not sitting behind a desk recruiting people to be hired by NTI. Rather, NTI’s recruiters are trying to fit you to the best work-from-home job they can find that meets your experience, qualifications, personality, etc. These contract employers, the ones with the jobs, have agreed to accept NTI’s tele-workers for either temporary or permanent contracts. Oftentimes these contract employers get tax breaks for “hiring” people who have disabilities. In short, if you decide to work through NTI, you “belong” to NTI – you are NTI’s employee (which is not a bad thing, as I’ll explain in a minute). But you are doing work for one of these contract employers. There are large companies, small companies, and just about everything in-between. (I don’t know if it would be ok for me to list company names, so I’ll just give an idea of companies that utilize NTI’s employees.) Phamaceutical companies, auto membership clubs, retail catalog services, customer service centers, etc. It’s much like having a large call center…spread out across the U.S.

    http://www.nticentral.org/ is the website for the company, and you can find a list of home office requirements as well as other information there.

    I don’t mind being an employee of NTI because:
    1) NTI doesn’t (to my knowledge) get a cut of my paycheck. I’m paid $9.00 per hour (gross pay), and I don’t get commission even though I am related to sales. Nice! NTI is there and processes my paycheck, but I really feel like I work for the contract company instead.
    2) There’s more job security in working through NTI. Though the contract I’m working on right now is “permanent,” as long as I have done my job and proven myself to be a valuable employee, NTI will help me find a new contract to work if, for some (odd) reason, my current contract company bit the dust. Perhaps I could get paid a little more for working for another company instead of through NTI…but for the job security, I’d gladly earn a little less and be content knowing I should have a job regardless.

    What do I think of working from home? Well, it’s really nice to be comfortable while I work…or at least MORE comfortable. I can work from my wheelchair, hospital bed, recliner, or hanging by my feet from the ceiling (well…almost…). This gives me much more flexibility than I would ever have at ANY job outside my home. Though I’ve worked from a call center before (years ago!), I find this job much less stressful without people (bosses) nagging me for “higher numbers” all the time.

    Is there a down-side? Of course. There’s a negative side to everything in life, isn’t there! But the negative is small compared to the positive. The only negative to this job is that I don’t see people. I’ve felt a bit cloistered in my home office and sort of cut-off from the world. But because I’m working part-time (and for now, that’s about all the more I can handle), I do have time to see people during the week and I’ve become much more intentional about inviting people over to my house!

    My employer was very kind to allow me to work Monday through Thursday from 4pm – 9pm so that I could have Friday off and attend a weekly scheduled social event that is important to me. If you’re nice, the employer may be willing to work with you regarding scheduling.

    If you are considering employment through NTI, start the process early. Trust me – it takes FOREVER! I started the process in August of 2009, and it was May 2010 before I was officially hired and began working.

    All in all, I give NTI thumbs-up! Just be ready to wait and continue to be creative with sources of income in the meantime. I hope this review is helpful to others!

    Cheers!

    @Marie:
    Sarah my name is Karen I am so close to your story it sounded like hearing about myself. I was in EMS as an EMT for about 18 years. I filed for SSD and SSI both. I am waiting to get turned down or get one I hope. I need the money bad I am running out. I don’t know how we can contact each other via E-Mail without sending our personal E-Mail out there for anyone?

    I applied at NTI but only got an automated response so far nothing but Im hoping I signed with them over a year ago and Im still waiting…lol Ive been on ssdi for 3 years due to menegitis…….hopefully I will survive long enough to get a job.

  • Bonnie

    @LaVerne Franks:
    I am replying to the person who said they liked your ideas, as they have a spinal problem, which is what I have, along with bad knees. No one wants to hire me, because I am on strong pain medication. I do just fine while on my medication. But, when I first entered your website, and it said Hello Beautiful, or something like that, it sounded like a scam to me. What kind of professional starts out with that? I’d love to check this out if it is for real, and doesn’t cost me an arm and a leg…

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Bonnie,

    I didn’t know that scam artist had such a great sense of humor. Because that’s what my default greeting was meant to inspire. lol Fortunately most people get the joke. I left the so called notion of professionalism behind when I left corporate america 3 years ago. This blog is meant to entertain and educate you. So provided you actually read the material you’ll clearly see this site is about helping people avoid scams. If you need some type of validation of this visit the following pages:

    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/media

    In any event, if the lack professionalism doesn’t bother you and you’re ready to find some legit work at home jobs, be sure to actually read the article above and visit our jobs page which is updated regularly:

    None of which costs you a dime by the way. Good luck either way.

  • Luci

    Hi Eddy.

    I am a SSDI disabled woman who has been supplementing my income the past few years. Through Mystery Shopping I am able to get paid for telephone calls done at home to call centers around the U.S. I supplement my food bill and other necessities by visiting grocery and retail stores for items I need to purchase. It is not a lot of money but it ensures I can eat and take care of basic needs. My SSDI goes toward my mortgage and other housing expenses.

    I am happy to find this site and some of the resources which I can follow up on. Glad to hear about NTI. I was contacted by them recently and thought it might be a scam. I plan to follow up with them based on feedback from this site.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    LOL Eddy..I’m glad you left your so called professionalism behind you or i might have missed out on one of the best and possibly life altering sites I’ve ever came upon.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    LOL,
    Well thank you Dustin! I’m happy I left it behind as well so I can be in this position to help people like you that appreciate the effort and have a sense of humor. lol

  • Janna Barbour

So I decided to go online and see if there was any info about NTI and came across this wonderful site. Thank you for all of the wonderfull info and support. With any luck I’ll have a job working from home!

    I don’t even know which company you’re referring to. Either way you should contact whatever company you’re referring to directly about their policies.

    Eddy, Is Profit Bank worth spending the money for and do you know if there is a continuing fee?

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Try using the resources actually listed in the article above. It’s the whole reason we wrote it to help folks like yourself. But it only helps if you read it and take action like most of the articles on the site.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Joann, Thanks for bringing this to my attention. After some further research, the links just needed to be updated which I have done. Hope this helps. Thanks for the kind words.

    hi am an 18 year old girl in a wheelchair and would love to work from my laptop because i get sick a lot during the cold weather so please help me find a job. 

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Just read the article above.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Kari,
    Thanks for the heads up. I’ve updated the page!

  • Deb

    Thank you so much! I will definetley look into these websites you have provided.
    I am disabled due to an accident that lead to chronic back pain and nerve damage. I have always worked and now I feel so depressed. I was the assistant to a buisness owner and made great money. Now I can no longer help my husband with the finances and it is not easy. There are days where I will just stay in my room locked up and cry.
    I am glad my husband is supportive of me but we barely get by since he is a teacher at a daycare. I am hoping this will help me get back into the job field (even if it is from home).
    Thank you…Thank you…THANK YOU!!!!!  

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Deb, you’re quite welcome! I’m obviously sympathetic to your situation and why I created this article because I know many folks in your situation do want to work if they could. So I’m happy to help. Definitely take action on the companies above and I encourage you to try the companies on my recommendation page:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations which can help you make some money right away. I wish you the best. However I’m confident if you continue to read this site and take action, you’ll be doing great. God bless you.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Honestly I wouldn’t know. You’ll have to contact the companies we listed above to see what type of opportunities are available for your daughter.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    John,
    You make a good point. But I believe the companies listed above try to work with you so
    that you don’t lose your benefits because they are aware of the situation. That being said everyone’s situation is different and the best thing to do is contact some of the companies listed above and ask their advice given your individual circumstances.

    The whole reason this article was created was because folks were asking for options that were available to them and that’s what we’ve provided. All the other details have to be figured out by the individual. The employer and state agency. Thanks.

  • Kittybit17

    Thanks for the help :) My mother in law has been on disability for 24 years now, and I have only known her for 5 of them. She has raised 2 wonderful children..aka. my husband, and has one left that is 10. We talk almost everyday, and we have been searching for jobs that she could do hopefully from in home or not far from home because she has cerebral palsy. This was most helpful!!!

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    You’re welcome. Hopefully this can help your mother-in-law.

  • Monica A.

    Thank you Eddy,

    I too have a hearing disability.  I have moderate to severe hearing loss and even with these new hearing aids, I find it difficult to hear.  Some cellphones and telephones nowadays, although they have bluetooth, just aren’t that powerful and loud enough for me to hear.

    I can’t even use my house phone because it isn’t loud enough for me (I have to take my hearing aids off and cram that phone into my ear to hear it).  So I’m thankful that you posted this.

    Have a great day!

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Monica,
    You’re so welcome! Hopefully these companies are exactly what you need to reach your goals. Thanks for sharing with me and you have a wonderful day too!

    Hi Eddy:
    I am new to your site, and looking for emploment for disabled.  I have a computer that I can use a headset to operate by voice as well as manually.  Will answer phones for companies, write, transcribe, or anything else an office assistant might do.  Looking to supplement disability income.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Sounds good, just read the article above and follow the advice listed in it. That’s pretty much why we have written for you. I’m confident if you read it and take action, you’ll find what you need. Hope this helps my friend.

  • Ralphburwell

    Hello Eddy,
    My name is Eddie as well and I’m looking for a job. I’m disabled due to epilpsy, but I only have seizures at night. I average having around 2 per year. I can do anything anyone else can. My disability check has shurnk to almost nothing, but I need to stay because of the health benefits. I will do anything–at home or not. I’ve graduated high school and have two associate degrees. I’ve been everything from a dollar store manager, to picking tobacco. I’m willing to work, under the table, for as little as $5 per hour. I haven’t had any luck yet, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Eddie,
    Always good to meet a fellow Eddie even if you’re name is spelled incorrectly. lol (Just kidding).

    I’m sorry to hear about them jerking your disability checks. Like folks need that in this economy. Well my friend, you’ve landed on the right article. My suggestion is to read it and take action on some of the companies listed in them. They know the issues facing the disabled population in terms of income and your benefits so they can work with you to stay within the guidelines. So definitely look into those companies in the article since they were specifically chosen for folks like you.

    I don’t know of any under the books opportunities online. If there is such a thing it will probably be a scam. But most legitimate companies do everything the “right” way. So don’t be lured into anything shady.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck Ed!

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    No problem. Take the time to actually READ the article above and you should be well on your way. Good luck.

  • Cuellarchristina

    You can earn a certain amount of money per month only for 9 months, but it will affect your housing, depending on how much you earn.Look into the rate of percentage of your disability, the city, state,you live in has alot to do with it, and the amount of money you are eligible to earn  without affecting any of your other disability benefits. At least get informed and then hope and pray to God He blesses you with a job.Also save, remember to have a job, you need clothes,food to take if you have a lunch brk,transportation(vehicle/bus/carpool)BUT most of all to be able to be NEEDED and competent to do something better than nothing.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Yes, read the article above.

  • Loraine

    Hi,
    I can’t seem to get through the red tape for disability, even with my doctor yelling at me to not work. We are having trouble paying the bills and I can’t even find a job in retail for the holiday season. :( I have RA, Fibromyalgia, and nystagmus. Not a fun combo. I have been looking for work for some time now and keep hitting dead ends. I just need to know that this is legit before I do anything. I am trying to keep a roof over my kids heads and utilities paid, but like for most of us this is a very hard task. I hate getting my hopes up just to be let down.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Thanks for the kind words. The fast cash stuff should have been a dead give away. Anything that is going to make you decent money requires hard work and time. It’s guys like that who misrepresent a legitimate industry like affiliate marketing which then leads folks to believe it’s a scam. At the end of the day you learned a lesson which is great. Always do your research which is a snap by following the steps in my scam video:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/scams

    And if you want to learn that affiliate marketing business by folks that aren’t trying to mislead you into it, I would suggest reading my Wealthy Affiliate article:

    I hope this helps. I’m glad you found our site either way.

  • DelD

    Hi, Eddy.  Thank you for your website.  I wanted to pass on some information recently learned. I went through training with NTI Central in October 2011 and recently found out that their contract has not been renewed by the Ticket to Work program for those receiving benefits from SSDI or SSI.  They have posted no jobs since I successfully passed their initial training though they stated November and December were their slow months.  

    Also, the link above for Melwood does not work.  Here’s the working link:  https://www.melwood.org/jobs.  Thank you again for your focus on those living with disabilities.  It is appreciated.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi DelD,

    You’re welcome. Thanks for sharing these updates with us. Let’s hope that things change with NTI Central soon. I’ve updated the Melwood link so thank you for bringing that to my attention. I appreciate it and so will others who visit this page.

    Thanks for your support!

    Hi,

    Visit some of the websites listed in the article. They specialize in helping you deal with earning income without jeopardizing your benefits. I’m not an expert in that. I just found the resources that can help you in that respect.

  • Carla

    Thank you, so much! I’m am disabled, NOT by choice of course. With depression, I’m better off when I’m busy. With bipolar, seizures and chronic migraines it is tough to find a job. My boyfriend, even got fired, because they weren’t family friendly about our situation. When I’m having a bad day, I cannot take care of my 2 young children. Which is alot of work, when they are both on the Autism Spectrum.
    Hopefully, I can find something, my bf and I both can do, to supplement our income and make things easier.
    With at home jobs, how does it work with the taxes? Of course, I can’t work but so many hours a week, legitamently, so just curious on how this works. I’m just getting started, so your help, is so very much appreciated.
    Thank You!
    –Carla
