i don't think it matters what happens afterward.
many end up back at work after their claim.
the sooner you return to work, the less financial loss you have.

My advice from where I stand now as completely disabled, and unable to work suffering severe depression is "IF YOU ARE ABLE TO WORK AT ALL DO IT" humans are social creatures who NEED outside stimuli, not working is basically unhealthy. I cannot express what would give to have a "purpose" again. Best of luck to you, and I would also ask my attorney's advice.
