I haven't applied for SS yet but I'm thinking about it. I've already returned to the work force after two great careers, but now that I've been diagnosised with Pca, I'm thinking its time to kick back and enjoy whatever life I have remaining. Is it worth applying for SS Disability Benefits or just filing for regular SS benefits? I'm sure I'm not the only Pca patient thinking of retirement after surgery.
I appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.
