I don't think it works that way!

If your disability benefits are meant to be offered when you'd get injured at work, then they'd not be applicable over here. Disability insurance is pretty much linked with the kind of job as well as the risks associated with the job that the insured is involved in.

I’m not sure if switching from unemployment to disability is allowed while receiving the benefits. But the reverse occurs fairly frequently. If a disabled person after receiving fit certificate can’t find proper employment matching his/her –age, experience and education, he/she can enroll for the UI benefits.



It’d be hard to determine disability in your case since you were already laid-off. However, I'd still suggest you to get things clarified from the state websites regarding UI and SSDI benefits.

While people can apply and be approved for disability benefits (through Social Security) at any time...I'm sure that they would look very closely at the circumstances surrounding your "disability." Is there a reason that you think you are going to be hurt while at your home?

I actually was hurt snowboarding while collecting unemployment and subsequently had to have surgery and extensive physical therapy. Now my unemployment claim is about to expire and I still can't walk. Anyone have any help/info?

Here's my situation in a nut shell. I have incurable liver disease and for the past 4 yrs I have had the luxury of a boss that understood time off and doctors appointments, etc. I literally missed a week or more every month as a result.



After getting laid off I could not afford to carry COBRA. I got no severance package of any type. My natural first move was to start unemployment. While collecting unemployment I have tried to find suitable employment...not having any luck finding work however my pain from my condition isn't getting better. It's getting worse. Unfortunately I tried to speak to someone in the local California Unemployment Department that not only barely spoke English but consistently refused to answer or transfer me to someone that could answer the question.



If I apply for permanent disability (I'm 52, worked since age 16, and a US Navy Veteran) will I lose what little money I am receiving from unemployment?



Thank you

I wouldn't think so, but probably would be a good idea to talk with an attorney on that one..or check the gov't. ss site and see if it addresses this.

Yes. You have to let the department of unemployment know that you can not work and the reason and then you can file for unemployment disability. I know you can do it because it happened to me. You can not have both claims going at the same time or there will be problems.

I am collecting unemployment benefits and have been for about 8 months, and plan on collecting for maybe

another 8 months with the extentions. I recently file a

disabilty claim, will this cause me problems?

You CAN collect disability if your doctor says you cannot work! You cannot collect both at the same time. Yoy pay into Disability so it is your money you would be getting back, you do not pay into Unemployment, your employer does.

If your doctor takes you off of work, they do the DI paperwork.

Collecting UC for about a year now thinking about surrendering a whole life Ins Policy to use the cash value towards bills. Will that cause a problem as far as my weekly benefits? If I work that's a different story just wasn't sure about found money.

Well Jennifer, that is a sticky wicket isn't it..all states are different, you'll need to check with yours, but frankly does it matter? At this point it either is or is not right?
