No problem with this. As long as it is not a disability pension and he is now doing physical work.
I am more concerned with all the fake disability pensions. I met a 19yr old who told me he was waiting for his SSI/disability to start. I inquired how he was injured. He informed me he suffers from Carpal Tunnel syndrome from his 6 mos of employment at BJ's wholesale. Give me a break!
