Collecting WC and SSD payment...

I am currenting receiving the maximum weekly WC benefit and have been since Oct 2005 following an unsuccessful neck surgery. I had a double fusion and now suffer from Chronic Pain and nerve damage. I have not been released and my treating Pain Management Dr has eluded that I may never be able to return to active employment in the same field, and perhaps not at all. My question is: Am I eligible for SSD? If so, do I need to speak to my Dr. before filing?

Question #2: If I have settled with WC and am approved for SSD, can I receive ANY other money from working a small job such as sitting for children in my home?

Thank you all for the time you devote to this board.
