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.
