Private Disability Insurance Private disability insurance includes sickness and accident payments, long-term disability, and short-term disability. This insurance is usually part of a benefits package at work. If you are currently receiving sickness and accident payments, you are still eligible for Pennsylvania work comp payments. Keep in mind:
- If your employer pays the premium on your private disability insurance, the amount of your work comp payment will be reduced by the amount of your private disability payment.
- If you pay the premium for your private disability insurance, your work comp payment will not be reduced.
- be unemployed through no fault of their own (ex. Didn't quit their job)
- be able to work
- be available to work
- register at a Job Service Office
- have worked a minimum number of weeks during the year
- have earned a minimum amount in wages during the year

Thanks for the feedback!
Collecting unemployment while on disability depends on the state and the laws. However, in most states, you cannot collect both.
Check your policy for language about disability while unemployed. Many will require that you be unable to perform two or more activities of daily living.
It stands to reason if the handicap was job-related- say exploding rocks causing blindness on a construction site, workmen:s comp might be in order! By and large unemplo…yment ( as a financial recompense) and disability, are two differfent establishments, why don"t you contact the Social security office in your town.
Can I collect both long term disability benefits and unemployment benefits while waiting for next disability benefit at the end of October?
In order to collect unemployment benefits, you must be physically able to work. In order to get disability benefits, you must NOT be able to work. So you can't have it both …ways.
Generally you can't collect unemployment while disabled because you have to be ready, willing AND able to go to work immediately for full time. Disability makes that impossibl…e, in most cases. If the time frame and every thing else applies, you might after the disability ends.
Disability insurance and unemployment insurance do different things. Disability insurance replaces your income in case you are sick or injured and unable to perform …your work duties. Private companies provide this coverage in PA. Unemployment insurance replaces your income if you lose your job. This is a state program. If you are disabled and your employer terminates your position, you may be able to collect unemployment. Second opinion: No because first of all you're already getting money and second you're going back to work so they won't grant you it
Unemployment insurance replaces your income if you lose your job. Short term disability insurance protects your income if you become disabled, and are physically una…ble to work. The two are mutually exclusive, unless your employer lays you off during your disability.
The state you live in will not impact your eligibility to receive Disability benefits from a Long-Term disability policy. Therefore, Yes you are able to collect Long-Term Disa…bility (LTD) benefits while receiving Social Security (SS) benefits. To be more specific though, whether or not you actually receive benefits from your LTD policy will have everything to do with the wording in the contract. If you have group coverage through work, then it is likely that any benefits you receive from Social Security will offset the benefits payable through your LTD plan dollar-for-dollar. In this situation, even though you are able to receive LTD from your company policy, you may not actually receive any from it if you are receiving Social Security benefits equivalent or higher than the monthly benefit it provides. The same consequences apply for Federal Government employees as through the FERS program. Additionally, if you own an individual policy that has Social Insurance offset benefits, then theses benefits will also be offset dollar-for-dollar. If you own an individual LTD policy that does not have Social Insurance benefits than you would be able to collect on Social Security benefits and 100% of the benefits provided through your LTD policy. This is actually one of the main reasons why individual LTD coverage is much better than group coverage.
You have to be physically actively looking for work with no reasonable restrictions, each week you receive compensation. See page 6 in the Handbook in the Related Link below f…or more information.
According to the Related Link below, to be eligible for unemployment you have to be available to go to work immediately with no restrictions on your ability to work (among oth…er requirements) If the disability prevents you from doing this, then no. Also, if you qualified otherwise, the benefits would be offset by any disability benefits you receive.
No, if you have a long term disability then you are not eligible for unemployment. That is why on unemployment claims they ask, "Are you able to work?" If you are disabled and… not able to work then you do not qualify for unemployment.
Can you collect short term disability and unemployment benefits if you are restricted by your limitations set by your physician and no work is available for you?
The criteria you set out would seem to qualify you. However, each state sets its own criteria for eligibility and, in most cases, you could not receive both short term disabil…ity and unemployment simultaneously.
It depends on the state and the nature of the disability. If you are permanently disabled and can't work then you probably can not get unemployment. They will ask you in the… check claiming process if you are able to work. Some states will allow eligibility if you have a disability, but it depends on the disability and whether it prevents you from doing any type of work you would otherwise be capable of doing.
It may depend on the nature of the disability. Unemployment requires the ability, among other things, to work and by definition, a disabled person might not be able to perform… that function.
Yes, Id say however it is dependent on VA's policies. Suggestions is to always apply. If you need any help, id consult more higher sources in the legal hierarchy or contact an…yone that could help you in dealing with Comp benefits in VA.
You can collect unemployment insurance benefits if you paid premiums or premiums were paid for you. As a realtor I don't think that applies.
If a pregnant women can't find a job while collecting unemployment can she apply for short term disability after giving birth?
No. Having a baby is not considered a disability. The other issue is that if someone is collecting unemployment, that typically means that they no longer have benefits from th…eir previous employer. In other words, most people who are not employed full time do not have short-term disability insurance.
