Can you draw unemployment while drawing Social Security in Alabama?
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.
According to page 8 in the Related Link below, you not only can collect Social Security AND unemployment, but your unemployment benefits are not reduced because of your SS ben…efits.
Unemployment is offset (reduced) by a portion of SS in only 3 states: Illinois, Louisiana, and Utah.
Yes. They are unrelated programs that do not affect each other.
Yes. They are 2 unrelated programs and do not interfere with each other.
Yes, but Illinois is one of 4 states that offset your unemployment benefits by a part of your Social Security
Yes, as long as you qualify for each of them separately.
No. Your Social Security benefits and unemployment compensation will not affect one another.
haha 69 ok but other than that i think you could
Yes. Neither interferes with the other.
No, and yes. You cannot draw unemployment benefits AND retire as you have to be actively seeking full time employment, for one thing. However, you CAN receive Social Security …benefits whether you are unemployed OR retired. Those 2 considerations do not affect receipt of Social Security.
You can draw both unemployment and Social Security in all 50 states.
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. They are 2 separate programs that are not affected by the other.
Yes, but drawing Social Security by itself does not mean you have to accept partial unemployment instead of full benefits.
Yes, as long as you can qualify for both of them individually.
Yes, as long as you qualified for both of them, individually.
