Choosing Work


What if I’m interested in starting my own business?

For some people, starting their own business will make the most sense for work. Starting your own business takes some planning and a lot of support. Some people find SCORE, the Service Corps of Retired Executives, helpful in creating a business plan.

Once you have a business plan, if you have SSDI benefits (Social Security Disability Insurance), or work income (or property), you may be able to take advantage of a PASS Plan, which stands for Plan for Achieving Self-Support.  PASS helps people to save up for things they need to become employed or to start a business, without jeopardizing their benefits.
