I would like to go back to college to learn just for the sake of learning. I just got approved for SSI disability through Social Security. If I earn a degree, will Social Security require me to get a job in field so they can take me off SSI disability?
Instead of paying tuition to earn a degree, I believe there is another option. I could audit the course. So If there is room in the class after tuition paying students register, I could then take the class for free. The professor, I think, isn't required to grade tests, nor am I required to take them. In that case, I don't believe Social Security could require me to get job because I don't think there is a record of the classes I audit or a grade for a class.
SSI could hardly require you to get a job, though they might require you to try. Success in the job market depends on those hiring, not government regulations or guidelines. Go for the degree- it will make you proud plus offer the possibility of being hired. Should you read this.
