If you are disabled you shouldn't have been able to collect unemployment AT ALL.. and if the state knew this they would've denied your benefit, or made you pay it back..you can't have it both ways..

I was on workers' comp for a year, disability a year, worked 6 months in pain, collected unemployment for 12 months and hurt too much to go back to work....where to go from here?
Good night nurse! Shocked how did you collect unemployment after working six months in pain? You'd have had to be laid off/fired, something, not just quit because you were in pain..if that were the case you should've went back on disability.

I have been unemployed since 2007. My job of 18 years suddenly came to a close due to "downsizing". After six months of receiving my employers severance package, I applied for Unemployment Insurance, which I have been receiving. I was granted Disability in 2009, not being able to work, nor find work. Can I still collect Unemployment Insurance? At least up to the date when I receive my first disability check?

No, if you are disabled you are unable to look for work, which of course is a requirement of collecting unemployment benefits,

Perhaps, I would think more likely would be until the date you were determined to be disabled. Ask you benefits contact.

I'm not sure but I doubt it, call your local unemployment office, and they will let you know. But I've got a better idea, how about looking for another job?

I wouldn't think they'd have a choice, and the unemployment would automatically stop...it stands to reason if you are disabled per the SS you cannot seek employment, therefore not qualified to receive unemployment benefits.

Hi! I'm collecting UI benfits in California. I just was approved for a second extension. My doctor just put me on disabilty for 6 weeks. Does that means the UI stops for six weeks until the disabilty runs out? Does the UI pick up automatically? Who do I speak to regarding this? From previous posts I've read I can assume I cannot get disability and UI at the same time. Thanks for your help. I appreciate it!

Hello,

I live in Oregon. I have been receiving unemployment since 2007. I am now disabled and am in the process of having Allsup help me with my disability claim. I have not signed papers with Allsup, yet. They say claim started on the day I called, which was a week ago. What do I do next? Can I still collect unemployment while I am going through the disability process: starting claim, claim review, decision process, and acceptance (by the grace of God, it will be granted).

A little late on the response to this, but maybe it will help others in a similar situation.



If you are "disabled" you are not capable of working or looking for work. To qualify for Unemployment Insurance benefits you must be capable of working and looking for work.



The two are mutually exclusive. If you've been collecting unemployment, and are now suddenly disabled, you may be eligible for the state disability insurance benefit, but you are disqualified for the UI benefit, regardless. When no longer disabled, you may be able to reapply for the balance of your UI benefit.



To collect either, you must sign a statement, under penalty of perjury, that your answers to the questions about looking for work or being disabled are true and complete to the best of your knowledge. So if you lie on one or both, you are committing a felony.



Even if you could collect both, something known as "integration of benefits" prevents you from collecting more than either benefit would pay by itself. No double dipping, so to speak. Others have tried and been caught.



If fraud is involved -- as in committing perjury -- you'll soon have new employment . . . in the prison laundry or license plate shop -- with or without a disability. And your new "spouse" will be Bubba (or Bubbette).

To qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, you must satisfy their definition of disabled, which includes the all-important words: "Unable to perform any substantial gainful activity."



If you are currently qualified for Unemployment Insurance benefits, then the state has determined you are able to perform some sort of "substantial gainful activity" and are therefore not qualified for the Social Security Disability benefit. You may qualify for one or the other, but the two are mutually exclusive.



However, if you qualify for SSD, you will be permitted to remain disabled (subject to continuing certification of your disability) up to age 65. Your disability benefit is most likely larger than your early retirement benefit at age 62 would be, so you wouldn't want to take it under the circumstances. At age 65, you cannot be disabled under Social Security rules, even if your full retirement age is 66, and your disability benefit will automatically convert to the retirement benefit you are eligible to receive at age 65, which will be a couple of percentage points lower than your age 66 full retirement benefit. Just one of the quirks in the system that Congress never fixed.

Are you asking about losing group insurance benefits? If the answer is, "Yes" . . . then the answer is, "Yes!" You could be eligible for an extension of health insurance benefits for up to 18 months under the provisions of COBRA, but you pay the full cost of the insurance (less any premium credits your employer would be entitled to receive under current federal law) with your own money. For many folks, the premium amount is cost-prohibitive.

If you are not living in NY, you are probably not eligible for NY unemployment benefits.
