Yes you can. As you might imagine, there are limits. First, I'd look at the Social Security pamphlet on the subject. If you still have some questions, I'd check with a local Social Security attorney. Your area is blessed to have several excellent ones.
I agree with the other lawyer. Also, make sure you are getting social security disability and not ssi. If you are getting ssi, even a part-time job can impact benefits. Also, make sure you report your work/income to ssa. though you can make 1090 dollars a month gross as of 2015 a month, be careful. I usually advise clients to be careful with getting close to that number. Also, talk to an attorney about this before starting a job.
Yes you can. Any work you do can be used as evidence of an inability to work, especially if your claim is reviewed in the future. I suggest you read up on trial work periods. You should be careful not to earn more than what would trigger a trial work month. For 2015 $780 triggers a trial work month.
