Well, that's why it's called disabilitiy pension. Most upper-income workers have private disability insurance to cover that risk since government disability is not usually generous.
I'd be careful about making judgments as to fairness given the fact that you are receiving a full pension from the gov at age 29. A few hard-working folks might question just how "fair" that is from the other side of the fence.
But from your perspective, sounds like things worked out very favorably.
