Quality of Life

I am mentally challenged because of a work related injury.
I wish to do things normal people do. While I am on disabled am I allowed to live a good quality of life? For example if I wanted to go canoeing with my family or go camping would this be somewhat frowned upon if I wanted to do stuff they do. Just because I am disabled doesn't mean I can't enjoy what's left of my life. Please let me know, I am disabled and have been collecting disability benefits since 1999.

The person in this letter wanted me to write to you and get answers, so she can have a better quality of life than just sitting at home.

Three Questions to Ask Before Claiming Social Security

1. Am I in good health?

If yes, consider deferring benefits.

2. Will my claim affect anyone else?

Higher-earning spouses often benefit by waiting until their full retirement age or later to sign up for Social Security.

3. How reliant will I be on Social Security income?

If you don't have much in savings, and are in good health, consider continuing to work.
