Can I work while waiting for a decision on my claim?

Social Security has relatively complex rules related to work activity while a claim is
pending including Trial Work Periods and Unsuccessful Work Attempts.  My advice to
clients is that they tell the local SSA office what it is they intend to do as work activity to
see how it will be treated if pursued.   

Generally, a claimant can do some work at less than SGA while the claim is pending;
however, there is sometimes a question in SSA’s mind as to whether or not the
claimant could do more work.  This kind of work is something you should discuss with
your attorney if you have one.
