I have been collecting Unemployment for about a year (in Texas). I am now told by my doctor that I need a hip replacement. Will I be able to pick my benefits up again after I am released to work? Or can I continue to receive them while not working?

Unemployment benefits are not disability income benefits. To lawfully collect Unemployment benefits, you must be actively seeking employment. You cannot do that if you are "totally disabled". Total disability means you cannot work.



So your unemployment benefit would end the day you are first hospitalized, and could only resume after your disability ends.

Had a bad fall last Tuesday, broke two bones in wrist, am having surgery in a few days. The fall was around 530pm. I completed my work search for that week, and continued looking for jobs. Do I have to snd that ck back to them since i was injured? And would i lose my unemployment since i am now having sugery? Would i be able to get unemployment disability?

This is a question for the state agency that handles your unemployment benefits. They are most likely responsible for any state-provided disability benefits. If you are entitled to the latter, they will figure out how to deal with it.



In all likelihood, a disability benefit may be more money than an unemployment benefit. It's based on your wages for a specific period of time, usually over the course of one year or more, prior to the date of your disability.



As for the week's unemployment benefit the week of your injury . . . I doubt they'll take it away in whole, but they might be entitled to take it away in part. Depends on what they are asking you to report on the weekly benefit form.

To be eligible for unemployment insurance benefits, you must certify under penalty of perjury that you are ABLE TO WORK AND ACTIVELY SEEKING WORK. If you are currently unable to work because you are disabled, then you should not be applying for or collecting unemployment benefits.

People should not reply when they do not know what they are talking about. Disability is not related to work injuries only. ..thats workers compensation.

To what are you referring with this statement? There is nothing in this thread that deals with workers' compensation claims.

Yes, I think you can apply for SSDI provided that:



1. Your condition has left you entirely incapable of working in your own profession

2. You have worked in jobs covered by Social Security



If you are eligible, you'd have to go through a 5 month waiting period before you are entitled to SSDI benefits.

I have been getting UC in FL for about 9 months. 1 & 1/2 weeks ago I broke my left hand & wrist & had non-invasive surgery. I'm in a big cast, can't drive for 4 - 6 weeks, have 1 hand to work with and will have phys. therapy after cast comes off. I'm still looking for work, but when I get an interview I don't know how I'm going to handle that. Not sure how to handle Unemployment Comp/Disability. Should I continue on UC or do they have any kind of allowance/exception if something temporary like this happens?

PostPosted: Sun Jul 01, 2012 2:00 am   Post subject: switching from unemployment  

hello. As briefly as i can...



ive been sick for years, undiagnosed because drs werent taking me serious due to my age, was 25 then. feb 2011, i got extremely sick, in hospital for 4 days, then had to be on short term disability until july. when i went back to work, i thought i felt better but continued to miss 5 days to 2 weeks each month, do to recurrences and surgeries.



work started dropping the hammer 2 weeks after i returned from surgery in may this year, even though i had explained before i returned to work july 2011 that i was still getting treatment and it would be affecting me. they knew up front that i would be dealing with many appoints, tests, errands associated with medical and it might interfere with my schedule. i have been consistently late to work everyday for 6 years, with no disciplinary action until 2 weeks after returning from surgery. needless to say, this caused a severe panic attack my dr put me off for 6 weeks.



as of right now, i have not had a significant diagnosis on the several medical problems ive been having. they are doing several tests, labs, specialists, and no solid answers yet. however, i do have extremely bad anxiety and depression from this whole ordeal, being unwell constantly and the stress of trying to function, unsuccessfully. the drs theories are autoimmune diseases, heart arrhythmias, constant migraines, stress associated seizures, and horrible visual disturbances.



soooooo. the questions are these.



as of right now ive only been diagnosed with bipolar, which i agree with but just do not believe its so severe as to be causing all of these unbearable physical symptoms. the dr feels its bad enough to keep me out of work right now. if i am soooo bipolar that its causing my body to start failing, or its something more major that just hasnt been found yet, and my dr puts me on long term dis., if i get well enough to work before i am eligible for ssdi, will i be able to transition to unemployment?



conversely, if i am well enough to be released to look for work on unemployment but then become sick again, will i be eligible to go on ssdi?



im concerned because either way, ssdi or unempl. ill lose my insurance. i also have no friends, or family, and will be forced to file bank. due to all the lost wages from medical, my car is breaking down. if i dont get either, im literally homeless and sick and starving. but until i get everything totally checked out with a diagnosis and know how severe my sickness is (in other words, will i be healed quick enough to go back to work in the next 3 months or will my dr put me on ssdi, is the million dollar question) i have no idea what to do and what my options are, and this is NOT helping me get back on my feet with all of this crashing down on me. im doing my best but its not good enough and i feel like a loser but im doing everything i know to do to get back on my feet and stop being a loser.



sorry for so long. hope you can give some advice. all is appreciated.

Your doctor is not responsible for this.

I broke my right hand in 3 places May 2012, (I am right handed), I have joint damage that is forming arthritis and recently my Dr. told me i might have torn ligaments in my right hand. My Dr. wants me to have surgery I am in constant pain. My question is am I able to recieve disability? I also have a leg injury from 2002, from a city bus accident, that is getting worse at age 15 I was to scared to get surgery now 11 years later it still swells up just to walk.
