There are provisions for people to try to work while they are waiting for their Social Security Disability decision. They’re a little complicated and they’re very technical. If you perform what is called SGA, that’s substantial gainful activity, then that disqualifies you automatically for Social Security Disability even if your disability is severe, it might ordinarily be considered disablling. So you have to be careful about the level of your earnings unless one of the exceptions to SGA apply. One of the exceptions is that you have an unsuccessful work attempt and that is where you try to go back to work but your work lasts less than three months and in actuality can even be over the SGA amount but you have to stop working because of your disability, you just could not continue.
