No. The Social Security Administration only pays disability benefits if they determine you have a qualifying condition, are completely disabled, and are expected to remain disabled for at least one year. If you are capable of working or engaging in "substantial gainful activity" (SGA) regardless of whether you receive income for your efforts, you will not be approved for SSDI benefits.

In addition, you -- or, under certain circumstances, a parent or spouse -- have to have made sufficient quarterly contributions to the Social Security fund before you become eligible to Social Security benefits.

Some government programs, such as those for disabled military veterans, may pay a monthly stipend if you are partially disabled or have a non-disabling condition that has been linked to your military service (for example, Vietnam Veterans who have Diabetes and were potentially exposed to Agent Orange automatically qualify for partial disability).

Another answer:If you are asking if you can collect Social Security Disability Benefits and Unemployment Benefits, the short answer is "no", unless you want to commit fraud.
