Can I work while filing a disability claim?

                                    You can work, as long as it is not "substantial." According to Social Security's rules, work
                                    that is not "substantial" does not count as "work" for purposes of deciding the onset date
                                    of your disability. There are dollar limits for what consistutes "substantial" work, called
                                    Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA). In 2011, your work is not substantial if you earn less  
                                    than $1000 per month (or less than $1,600 per month if you are blind). The Court can look  
                                    to your part-time work activity to help determne what your residual capabilities for full-time 
                                    work might be.
