With today's technology and the growing demand for virtual jobs, finding work at home is a very doable task. Many companies hire disabled people to work online at home as independent contractors. Independent contractors decide when they work and how much they work. As an independent contractor, you are an entrepreneur, which means you have to keep track of and file your own taxes. If you're disabled, whether you're a stay-at-home mom, doctor, lawyer, writer or just looking for a way to supplement your income, work-at-home jobs are plentiful.
