    I work for a tech company that hires line workers (assembling stuff), technicians, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, programmers, etc. It all depends on your qualifications and skills.

    I worked a short stint for HP. They claimed to only hire "top talent", but their pay was middle-of-the-road. I wouldn't be surprised if Dell was the same.

    Go to Vocational Rehabilitation and see how they may help. It is true that if you work, you will eventually lose your check and also health care. Disabilities in the US still follows the charity/dependency model. Other countries also do to an extend but wherever there is national health care, the disabled are able to have a bit more wriggle room to try.

    The penalties in the US can be catastrophic and deadly if one loses health care. Talk to VR. They can explain all this to you. If you can work at a place that offers good benefits, you will not need to be on the System, but you need advice from those who work in the area because it is unbelievably complicated and requires data keeping, work-hours logged, etc......People do it, but you must know what you are doing.

    If you live in a state that expanded Medicaid to include adults without children, you will be able to get health insurance regardless of your income.

    If you live in a state that only covers adults who have children (common in many Southern states), then you may be better off not trying to work because you could lose your benefits and end up not being able to get health insurance.
