Thinking About Work
Can work improve my financial situation?
Yes! In most cases, working even part-time can improve your work situation, even if you’re on benefits. Money is not the only reason that people work, for example, some people work to be busy, to be around people and make friends, some people work to add something to their communities or “give back,” and some people see work as a spiritual practice.
Though there are many reasons to work, for most of us, the money is a good reason to get out and work. A salary or paycheck can help us to pay our bills, have more money to do the things we love, go out on dates or with friends, even get a treat now and then.
If you have benefits, you may want to look at the question, “What happens to my benefits when I work?”
