This study investigated the relevance of income, disease, and perceived employment situation variables for predicting job satisfaction among employed adults with multiple sclerosis (MS). Employed participants (N = 555) who had responded to a national survey regarding employment concerns constituted the sample. Results from a three-level hierarchical multiple regression analysis included the following variables as best predictors of job satisfaction: income adequacy (level 1) and job/person match (level 3; R 2 = .38). Annual income, disease factors, and expected job tenure were not retained in the model. The article discusses the need for early rehabilitation interventions in the workplace to address concerns regarding perceived adequacy of income and job/person match.
