    • Sheila, This video posted by Alicia at Workers On Board (a reputable work at home website) has some info on work at home jobs that do not require a background check –

  1. Could you find opportunities for individuals with disabilities who do not receive SSI/SSDI disability benefits? I have found agencies are not as helpful to individuals who learn about their disability when they are an adult.

    Thanks for all you do!

    • Ange, I’ve been doing some digging and thought you might like to know that, according to this blog post, you can email My Employment Options and they will send you a list of opportunities, other agencies, websites, forums, etc. that they recommend for the disabled who do not receive benefits. You can send an email to help (at) myemploymentoptions (dot) com to receive the list. I haven’t seen the list personally, but it might be worth a look.
