What would you like to do?
Can you collect Social Security benefits in Massachusetts if you are collecting unemployment benefits?
I am 66 years of age and got laid off the same month that I started Social Security. Yes you can draw both. I live in California and have not had any problems.
Can you collect both unemployment insurance benefits and Social Security benefits at the same time in Massachusetts?
Yes. If you qualify for unemployment benefits in your state, you can also collect Social Security benefits as they are 2 separate and distinct programs that do not interfere w…ith each other.
I believe this answer is slightly incorrect -- "Yes, you can. Under "Non monetary Issues" > "Disqualifications" item (f) on page 5 of the Related Link below, Social Security b…enefits are excluded from the disqualifying chargeable benefits you receive." As I understand it, people who live in Louisiana and Illinois and receive social security payments and are eligible for unemployment benefits will have money deducted from their unemployment checks. In illinois, half a person's weekly social security payment is deducted from that person's weekly unemployment check. Illinois AARP has made repealing the social security offset law a priority.
Yes, you can collect from them both at the same time, as long as you qualified for each of them. can you collect unemployment and social security
This depends on the severity of the disability, and the state laws regarding unemployment and disability issues. The SSDI might be interested in what you were doing, so its be…st to check with both the Federal and state offices to get clarification.
Yes, as long as you qualify under both programs.
i was laid off today, not due to poor performance, budgetary concerns. planned on working till 66.5 ....I am 62 ...can I collect unemployment and social security>
Yes you can collect both, as long as you qualify for each.
To collect unemployment you have to be actively seeking work and able to do the work. Receiving Social Security Disability implies you may not be able to either, so probably n…ot.
Yes, as long as you qualify for both.
Can you collect unemployment insurance benefits and Social Security benefits at the same time in Massachusetts?
Yes, as long as you qualify for both of them individually.
Yes, you can if you want, but it's not necessary as you can receive both at the same time without either interfering with the other (unless you are in one of the states that o…ffset unemployment by SS benefits - Illinois, Utah and Virginia)
Whether or not you collect Social Security has no bearing on if you can collect unemployment. That depends on your state's requirements for your work history, etc.
In State Laws
Absolutely. As long as you qualify for each of them individually. Three states currently will offset your unemployment benefits by your Social Security (not the other way arou…nd) and they are Illinois, Virginia, and Utah.
Yes. If you're eligible for unemployment, you can certainly apply and get unemployment payments even if you get Social Security anywhere in the United States. You will get the… full amount everywhere except Illinois -- which, as of November 2013 -- is the only state that still deducts money from unemployment payments to older workers who are on Social Security. Virginia completely repealed what is known as the Social Security offset two years ago.
