When the lady said "failed work attempt" I thought she meant that I had failed in my attempt implying that I should go back and try harder. I expected to get denied so I was pleasantly surprised when the letter came and said it was approved.
The couple other things to know is that you can still work and receive SSDI. I'm not sure what the rules are but after being approved you are allowed to earn a certain amount per month but you have to report it. Even if you exceed the allowed amount in any given month it is only counted as 1 strike. You are allowed something like 12 strikes before it is revoked. I think it raises red flags in the system and it may cause your case to be reviewed.
I continued to work occasionally when my employer called to see if I could. I had a hard time keeping track of what I was earning each month so it wasn't very often.
