As long as I am working, I'm increasing my SS monthly payout. Also, you can actually work part-time without reducing your monthly check, unlike disability.

I'm glad you are able to work!  Makes life feel more secure.

You can work part time on disability without losing eligibility, however, there is a monthly earning cap somewhere around $1K.

Yeah, but I've got an education, and frankly the extra earnings allowed ain't gonna cut it. Nobody seemed to be interested in PT work locally, except for low-paying service jobs, and working PT in my field would max me out after about 10 hours a week.

I retired on SSDisability when I was 62,  I didnít loose any money since my Benifits were calculated as if I was 66, in other words my payments were not discounted for collecting 4 years early.  When I reached full retirement age I was moved to regular SSA Benifits, so there was no difference for me in working 4 more years or going out early.

How bad did the symptoms of kidney failure get before you started dialysis and how soon after starting dialysis did you feel much better?

Thanks

Are you feeling any better?
