I quit my job because I had a serious illness and couldn't perform at work. I claimed temporary disability for 3 months and now I'm searching for a job. Can I get unemployment benefits while looking for a job in CA? I'm really suffering from this unemployment after disability.

Hi there, I'm sure this kind of temporary insurance is available for the workers in atleast 5 states namely Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, California and Hawaii, as well as the commonwealth of Puerto Rico. So you may go and consult with your state insurance department about filing your claim !

Let me remind you - if you're a federal, state or any municipal employee or may be partners or say a non-incorporated self employed worker then this coverage may not be applicable for you at all !

Remember, that in order to be eligible for such a policy that covers unemployment after disability you always have to have certain earning requirements and also get medical certifications from a certified healthcare provider clearly stating your inability to work under the circumstances.

Thanx for consulting the community ! Evan

Hi, I'm sure you're aware that this TDI is a form of cash sickness benefit that partially covers workers for any wage loss due to short non-occupational disability. It was enacted in California in 1946. The occupational groups which are opted out of this facility are the domestic workers, family workers, govt. employees as also the self-employed(except California law allows elective coverage for self-employed persons). California covers agricultural workers.



In California, its possible that the employers may "contact out" of the public plan (publicly operated disability insurance funds) by offering an approved pvt. plan. This plan is usually insured by any commercial company or may be financed by any self-insurance.



The Railroad workers are not allowed any TDI benefits while they receive any sick leave pay.



In california, the (benefits+paidsick leave) for any week during disability should not be more than the insured's weekly earnings before this disability. Also would like you to note that the waiting period towards payment of the benefits is waived off in California.

Also in California, a pvt. insurance plan must maintain more benefit rights than any under the state-operated plans.



I'm sure these basic infos gonna help you in some ways or the other !

regards, attorney87

Wife pregnant and collecting unemployment benefits and has been looking for work all this time but now that she's getting close for the baby to arrive she has complications due to diabetes therefore her doc is going to allow her to be in temporary disability. The question is how do we go about switching from collecting unemployment to disability benefits and once the doc release her from disability and she still can't find a job go back to collecting unemployment benefits again? how do we do that? we tried going to our local unemployment office here in NJ but the moment that the lady at the help desk show her she told her that she needs to be in disability right away and she was only 6months then. Can anybody help us with this one?

If anyone can answer this, Id appreciate it. I am going on shortterm disability and am sure that my employer will terminate me while I am gone. If that happens and I recover and am off disability, can I file for California Unemployment Benefits?

I am a nurse, whose just being released to return to work (RTW) after nearly 1 yr of disability. Does the State UI allow me to look for work in my "respected field" and not any random "unprofessional field" of lesser training and still qualify for benefits until I find work.

You must be able to work and actively seeking work to receive UI benefits. If you are disabled and cannot work at all, you cannot collect UI payments.



An earlier post asked about being unemployed as a nurse, but not wanting to look for work outside the nursing profession. You are free to do that, but you will be denied UI benefits. Work is work, and you might think it's beneath your "professional" skill level, but the government doesn't care. If you are only willing to accept certain jobs, you won't qualify for UI benefits.

The rules under federal law require that you have qualifying wages in the 12 months prior to applying for unemployment insurance benefits. Since you had no wages in the required time period, your claim must be denied. Additionally, to be eligible for UI benefits, you must be able to work and actively seeking employment.



There are other "entitlement" programs which may be able to assist you. If your disability prevents you from performing "any substantial gainful activity", you may qualify for Social Security Disability if you meet the minimum eligibility guidelines, including being currently or fully insured.



There are also SSI (supplemental security income) and SSP (supplemental security payments) each of which has a different set of eligibility guidelines.



And your state and local county agencies may have other forms of public assistance available, including TANF, food stamps, and Medicaid.
