Hi, was wondering if there are many (US) SSDI people living in the Lake Chapala region? I'd like to relocate there, but worried that SSA might frown on that. Their website suggests that it's probably OK (branch office in Guad.), but suggestions and reality are usually two different things.

At this point I'm not ready to deal with procedures, paperwork, etc., for relocating there, just want to get a sense of whether there are many SSDI people and how they've fared with SSA. I'm 6 years away from age 62 retirement, but the economy being what it is...

I'm also not too concerned with "culture shock", having grown up on the Tex/Mex border and spent quite a bit of time in Chihuahua and Mexico City. Despite the current problems in the country, I still think it's a good choice.

Thanks in advance for any information.
Whatcom:

Since I´m not apprised of what situation makes you eligible for SSDI, it´s hard for me to assess the difficulties you might experience living at Lake Chapala except to say that the urban areas here are not user-friendly for pople with limited mobility. On the other hand, we are both on social security and have no problems whatsoever in receiving monthly benefits but Medicare is another issue and you can forget that here. Tell me more and maybe I can tell you more. The mobility issue is important here for several reasons but if that is not an issue with you then we can go from there.
