I am trying to find some supplemental work to help out right now since I am unable to go back to work yet and I honestly don't know when I will be able to. I have government checks coming in each month which is enough to just scrape by but I have nothing left over to get anything extra like eating out, buying gifts, and the like. I want to find something I can do for now to bring in an extra, say, $500 a month. Anything out there online right now worth trying?
While $500 a month isn't much to ask for, there is not much you can do online that can pay that much. I would recommend looking into freelance work. There are some websites that host freelance workers so you can sign up to them and offer a service. Outside of this, you can look into working from home as a call agent. You might be able to make $500+ doing that.
There is a website, I can't remember what it is called, where they pull listings off craigslist that are from home. Check on there. Just google telecommuter jobs craigslist. It will pop up as the first result.
If you have any particular skill such as writing or drawing, offer your services on websites such as Fiverr. You can earn quite well on there.
Also have a look at Indeed for remote-only jobs, there's plenty out there.
There are plenty of skill based online sites where you can offer your skill for money. If you have a skill in drawing or painting, people will pay a decent amount for custom logos and graphics.
