Check to see whether there are insured accounts which will pay a higher rate of interest. For example, check offsite link

Real Estate

You can rent all or part of your residence, even if only renting a bedroom as a bed and breakfast.

Life Insurance

Perhaps you can obtain money from your life insurance policy while you are alive.


Credit may provide money if you need it. If you use credit while on disability, it is preferable to use credit cards that have life insurance attached which will pay off the debt in the event of your demise.

Stocks, Bonds And CDs

You can borrow against these financial instruments while retaining ownership.

Retirement Accounts

You can borrow from most retirement accounts. It is also possible that you will be able to make withdrawals without penalty due to your health condition.
