    I'm on disability and do not have to work, but I'm bored.  I love dancing, it's therapeutic for me.  I was offered a job at a lesbian night club to be a cage dancer.  I would have to wear corset like outfits, and I make tips and get free drinks all night long.  Should I do it?  Sounds fun to me, but is it tacky O.o

      As I understand SSI benefits, you would lose them if you got a job.

        Not true.  You can earn some income without any penalty.

        I receive SSDI... I can earn up to 1000 a month without losing benefits.  I'm getting my money I paid into the system.

    You're on disability, don't work, but you have the ability to go dance in a cage all night for tips and free drinks?

      Well I don't plan to drink because I can't.  I'm on medication for my disability. I have a mental disorder.  Maybe that's why this sounds fun to me.

        You can work and be on disability - just can't make over a certain amount of money I think.  If you would enjoy it, why not?

    I think what Maddie said is correct.  What other things are fun to you?  If you like to dance, maybe you can go to a dance class.

    No issues it could be therapeutic depending on the illness just like starting an exercise program it would be wise to get your Docs opinion first.

    Hey Figment, you could possibly make more money than you're allotted. hmm

    Depending on how popular the club is and with a great looking body, you could earn more working for them, than the average person who works a full-time job, by working part-time. lol

    And, knowing what you look like, and having been in dance clubs/strip clubs, then I would have to say that you'd make excellent money. lol
