Can you draw unemployment while drawing Social Security in Alabama?
Generally speaking, no, you cannot receive unemployment benefits after you apply for social security disability. This is because you have to be looking for work and just can't… find any to draw unemployment. An SSDI claim means that you are unable to do any work. If you are unable to do any work, you can't really be looking for work. This is a somewhat gray area, though. You CAN actually work a little if you are on SSDI. In fact, it is encouraged because they want you to get back to work and off of SSDI. But the amount you can work and still draw SSDI is rather limited ($900/month I think). Anything over the threshhold amount is deducted from your SSDI payments. But actually drawing unemployment while stating that you are unable to work at any job seems to be a contradiction. My attorney told me that it may or may not get you into trouble and it's best not to tempt fate. Especially where the murky federal laws and state/local laws intertwine. The best thing to do is contact your SSDI application attorney to find out for sure. If you don't have an SSDI attorney and you are applying "pro se", good luck to you. Almost all claims filed by the applicant (pro se) rather than an attorney fail. "Pro se" means you are representing yourself without legal council and is frowned upon by attorneys in general and by the judiciary in particular. The saying goes that a lawyer (or lay person) who represents himself has a fool for a client. Best advice is to lawyer up.
Yes, if you have worked within the last year and were terminated from your job or quit under certain, narrow circumstances. Because they are separate programs, designed for di…fferent purposes, you need to qualify for them individually, but can receive benefits simultaneously.
Yes, but drawing Social Security by itself does not mean you have to accept partial unemployment instead of full benefits.
haha 69. ok but other than that i think you could
Yes, you can collect them both.
Yes. You can draw Social Security retirement benefits and Wisconsin unemployment benefits at the same time. If you are on Social Security disability , you're taking a risk …because state of Wisconsin requires all unemployment recipients to be willing and able to accept full-time work. This creates a conflict, because you're generally not eligible for Social Security disability benefits if you're capable of full-time work. The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development requires you provide your Social Security number, or they won't process your claim (authorized under Internal Revenue Code of 1954, 26 U.S.C. 85, Sections 6011(a), 6050(b), 6109(a), P.L. 98-369, Section 1137(a)(1) and under Wisconsin Statute Section 108.04(2)(e)). The rules clearly state that they will share information about your claim with other government agencies to determine how unemployment affects other benefits you may receive, such as Medicaid and food stamps. The conflict between simultaneously claiming to be incapable of "Substantial Gainful Activity" (SGA), which generally translates to full-time work, and contractually agreeing you're willing to accept full-time work (under Wisconsin rules) in exchange for unemployment compensation, has the potential to trigger a Continuing Disability Review (CDR), which may result in the SSA determining you no longer meet disability requirements. If you believe your circumstances may create an exception, you can call the Social Security Administration anonymously at 1-800-772-1213, explain your situation, and ask their advice.
Yes. They are 2 unrelated programs and do not interfere with each other.
Yes, you can draw both. In Social Security, you have taxes taken from your paycheck that you are able to access after you reach 62, are blind, or disabled. Unemployment benefi…ts are paid by the state, from payroll taxes charged the employer, for the benefit of people who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own. Because the 2 address different issues you can receive both simultaneously, as long as you qualify for each of them.
Yes. They are mutually exclusive.
The issue is not with Texas, but with Florida. Florida might charge you with unemployment fraud because you would be drawing their benefits AND the Fed's SSDI. The Social Secu…rity Administration investigates very thoroughly before awarding their benefit. If THEY said you wouldn't be able to work due to a disability, Florida's requirements might be violated. If you qualify for SSDI, check to see if you should cancel Florida's benefits.
Yes, but Illinois is one of 4 states that offset your unemployment benefits by a part of your Social Security
No. Alabama is not one of the 4 states that do offset unemployment with the Social Security.
In State Laws
Unemployment is offset (reduced) by a portion of SS in only 3 states: Illinois, Louisiana, and Utah.
Yes, as long as you qualify for each of them separately.
Yes, as long as you qualify for each of them separately.
Are you disabled? SSDI is payable to covered individuals who are permanently and totally disabled. Unemployment compensation is payable to those covered individuals who are …able and willing to work, but unable to secure employment. If you are disabled, you ineligible for unemployment. If you are willing and able to work, you do not qualify for SSDI. If you broke your hip in a wreck, and are recovering in the hospital, you would qualify for neither, because your disability is temporary. That's not to say that there aren't people collecting both SSDI and unemployment - but that's a criminal offense.
