Can a person over 65 who is eligible to draw Social Security but has chosen not to do so yet then collect unemployment benefits when he loses his job and still postpone collecting Social Security?
Yes. If you lost your job and are entitled to unemployment benefits, due to the manner in which you lost your job, then by all means collect unemployment. Merely because being… over 65 years old and eligible to draw Social Security does not mean you are required to draw it. Postpone drawing for as long as you can as the benefits will not decrease nor go away.
Typically, a disabled worker may expect to receive $1,067 in disability payments every month. However, if the claimant has a spouse and a child, the average monthly social sec…urity benefits may increase up to $1,813. Monthly SSI benefits are lower and single beneficiaries may receive $674 monthly but for couples, the payment may increase to $1,011. In 2010, the maximum individual benefit is $2,346, which assumes 35 working years paying the maximum FICA contribution. A disabled person with a family can receive a maximum family benefit for a qualifying spouse and children of $4,222.80. These numbers are unrealistic for most people, however. In 2010, the average disability benefit is $1,065.90. The average payment for qualifying minor dependents is $317.10 each, terminating the month before the child turns 18 (or 19 if still in high school). Under certain circumstances, the spouse of a disabled individual may also collect a small monthly stipend, averaging about $286.70 per month. The family maximum is 150-180% of the disabled worker's benefit.
United States In the United States, the Social Security Administration is responsible for federal disability benefits as well as retirement and survivors' benefits, Supplemen…tal Security Income, and several other related social programs. There are 2 federal programs under the U.S. Social Security Administration that are designed to provide disability benefits to injured/disabled workers or individuals with little income and few resources. The first is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and the second is the Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Persons with disabilities may apply to either depending on their qualifications, so as to receive monthly financial assistance to help make ends meet while they are unable to work for a living or if they totally have no means of earning. United Kingdom The department of health and social security is now called the department for work and pensions and whatever benefits you receive are paid from one of their offices albeit that income support and job seekers and most other benefits are granted and sent out from offices here in England your disability living allowance comes from Belfast from the dla office based there and although your DLA is indeed a state benefit it is not what you would call social security benefits which are there for you to live on and DLA is not for you to live on but there for your quality of life and therefore does not come under the same section in the benefits office.
Can a person over the age of 65 who has been drawing Social Security while working collect both unemployment and Social Security benefits if the person is laid off?
According to the Social Security Administration, each state makes its own rules with regard to paying unemployment compensation to laid-off Social Security recipients. In most… cases, the answer is yes, you are eligible to receive unemployment benefits while drawing Social Security, but your benefits may be reduced or offset by a portion of your Social Security check. Receipt of any type of Social Security benefit must be reported to your state's Department of Labor Unemployment Compensation Service at the time you apply for unemployment compensation. Contact your local unemployment office for more specific information.
You can draw a reduced Social Security benefit starting between age 62 and your full retirement age. Someone born in 1953 has a full retirement age 66. You should become fami…liar with the Social Security website given in the related link.
That depends on your year of birth. If you were born before 1943, the SSA considers full retirement age to be 65, and the earned income cap is lifted the month of your birthda…y. If you were born between 1943 and 1954, you will reach full retirement age at 66. In the year prior to your 66th birthday, the Annual Income Test remains at $14,160, with a benefit reduction of $1.00 for every $2.00 you earn over the limit. Your social security check will be withheld beginning in January of the next year until the entire overage is offset. If you retire this year, special rules apply to prevent retirees from being penalized for high income earned prior to their retirement date. Nothing you earn before filing for retirement will be counted toward the limit; however, you cannot earn more than $1,180 in each of the months following retirement the first year without incurring a penalty. In the year you reach full retirement age, you can earn $37,680 annually, but for every $3.00 over the limit, $1.00 is withheld from your benefits until the month your reach full retirement age. The income cap is lifted completely and permanently the month you reach full retirement age.

No - you have to apply.
no question; Will i get a raise in January on my disability check? Elaboration: The checks won't stop. You will still get them but they will be converted to Social Security.
Yes. It has been found, however, that for some reason some states (Virginia, for example ) reduce the amount of your unemployment compensation by the amount of your SS, which …they should not because they are 2 separate and distinct programs that have no bearing on the purpose of each other. You should check with your own state for its handling of the matter.
At age 65 which is no longer the benchmark retirement age, you are subject to the earnings test until you reach the year of your normal retirement or full retirement age. Fo…r 2010 the amount would be 14,160. The earnings limit for workers who are younger than "full" retirement age (age 66 for people born in 1943 through 1954) will remain $14,160. (We deduct $1 from benefits for each $2 earned over $14,160.) The earnings limit for people turning 66 in 2010 still will be $37,680. (We deduct $1 from benefits for each $3 earned over $37,680 until the month the worker turns age 66.) There is no limit on earnings for workers who are "full" retirement age or older for the entire year.

Medicare is a separate program from Social Security, and yes, you should enroll at age 65 even if you are still working and not yet drawing retirement benefits. Please note …that enrollment is not automatic; you have to sign up for Medicare either online, by mail or at your local Social Security field office. You are strongly encouraged to apply as soon as you become eligible because you may have to pay a higher monthly premium if you wait too long. Additional Information Per Discussion If a person is already receiving Social Security benefits (which the question clearly states is not the case), enrollment in Medicare Part A (hospitalization insurance) typically would be automatic. When a person becomes eligible for Medicare at age 65, but is not yet retired, he or she has to make an active choice to enroll in Medicare. The enrollment period begins three months before the month of the person's 65th birthday and continues for 3 months afterward. If the person neglects to enroll during the seven-month window, he or she has to wait for a future general enrollment period (January-March) to join. All Medicare Part A recipients have a choice whether to enroll in Medicare Part B (doctors' visits and outpatient) or C (Advantage comprehensive plans), or opt out due to alternate coverage (or for whatever reason). If the person doesn't intentionally sign up, the default would be to opt out. People who sign up for Part B prior to retirement receive a bill for premiums. Medicare Part D (prescription drug) coverage is available after retirement. If you are on Medicare Part A or Part B, you can buy a Part D policy at retirement or later, during an open-enrollment period (November-December). Delayed enrollment may result in higher premiums. People with Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage) often receive drug coverage through their Advantage plans. Medicare Part A (hospital coverage) is available "free" because we pay for it in advance through FICA contributions during our working years. Nevertheless, a person who is not receiving Social Security retirement benefits must still enroll in Part A, even though there is no cost of enrollment. As stated above, Medicare Part B or C, if elected, is billed to the recipient. The premiums can be deducted automatically from cash retirement benefits only after the person retires.

Disability benefits are through the Social Security Administration. You can contact their local office or visit their website.
No. Not until the year that you reach your FULL RETIREMENT AGE (FRA) or NORMAL RETIREMENT AGE (NRA) Go to the SSA gov web site and use the search box for FULL RETIREMENT AGE… Full retirement age (also called "normal retirement age") had been 65 for many years. However, beginning with people born in 1938 Click on the below Related Link
Yes you became eligable at age 62. The longer you work, the higher your income from SS will be, except when you turn 68 benefits will no longer go up
