    Hi, is it a full time or part time job? No one can really answer the question of if you’ll be able to do it better than you can yourself. You can work and retain all or part of your disability allowance depending on how much you earn. It’s not really clear from your post what you are asking about though. Are you asking how it would affect your payment or if you would be physically or mentally able for it? I work 24 hours a week. I get reduced DA payment and my employer gets a grant for employing me through the wage subsidy scheme. I found my job through a job coach with the employability service.
