If you are full retirement age drawing Social Security can you draw unemployment if you worked full time and was just laid off?
Yes. There are four states that will offset your Social Security against your unemployment benefits, but all the rest will pay compensation in spite of the Social Security. As long as you qualify under your state's rules concerning unemployment you're safe to go!

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.

Can I still draw social security if still working a full time job at age 62
As long as you qualify as any other worker who is applying for unemployment, your age does not matter. In fact, just the opposite may apply. If you could establish you were fi…red BECAUSE of your age, you might be eligible under the Federal Age Discrimination laws that prohibit discharges due to age. In that case, you could receive substantially more than unemployment benefits would provide.
If you are working full time but have been put on temp layoff can you draw unemployment benefits if you are drawing Social Security benefits in North Carolina?
The below Related Link refers to as "if still attached to an employer's payroll not needing to register", apparently allowing unemployment for a temp layoff. You can draw Soci…al Security benefits, regardless of temp layoff or any other employment situation because it is unrelated to employment issues.
Unless you had previous work history from which to draw unemployment against, you would not be eligible on one weeks employment only.
The answer depends on your individual circumstances; however, if you begin drawing retirement benefits at age 62, your check will be approximately 75% of what you would receiv…e at full retirement age (most likely 66). This will be your base rate for the remainder of your retirement.
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.

If you are laid off and you are eligible to collect unemployment and at the age of retirement can you collect unemployment and Social Security at the same time?
The short answer is yes. But be aware that in 4 states (Illinois, Louisiana, Utah, and Virginia), your unemployment benefits are offset by 50% of your Social Security benefits….
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.
Can you draw unemployment and Social Security at the same time if you get laid off from a part time job?
