To collect unemployment you have to be available for work. So, you would probably NOT be considered disabled to collect under your Disability Policy.

For more info check out the State DI and Social Security DI programs.

No. The only thing you might be able to collect is 'Disability Insurance'. Unemployment Insurance comes into play only when a person has been laid off from active employment - people are not laid off for medical illnesses.

Unemployment insurance is for people who lose their jobs. Disability insurance is for people who can't work due to a medical reason.Your best bet is to apply for short term disability insurance before getting pregnant. Your normal maternity leave will be a covered benefit.

Disability Income insurance is not included in major medical. It is a completely different type of insurance.

Medical expense insurance: Covers some or all of the out of pocket expenses paid by the insured for covered medical expenses. Disability insurance: Makes up for some or all of the income lost during the disability of the insured.

Unemployment insurance is designed for people who lose their jobs for economic reasons. Short term disability insurance can replace your income if you stop working for medical reasons, and normal maternity leave is a covered benefit. Be sure to apply for coverage before getting pregnant.

Yes - keep both coverages. They are designed for two very different purposes. Your medical insurance reimburses the doctors and hospitals that provide your medical treatments. Disability insurance replaces a portion of your income during the time you are sick or hurt and unable to work.

Health insurance and disability insurance (short or long-term) do not affect eachother. While health insurance pays for medical expenses reimbursement, disability insurance pays to replace your income lost due to healthconditions.

In general, no. You must be unemployed through no fault of your own, able to work and be seeking work. However, you MAY be eligible for disability insurance coverage.

Unemployment is when you have no job, for whatever reason. You may receive unemployment insurance payments if you lost your job for a variety of reasons, but usually not if you voluntarily quit your job. Disability is when an injury, illness, or physical condition makes you unable to perform the functions of your job or a similar job. You may receive disability insurance payments if it has been determined by the appropriate state assessment board that you are temporarily or permanently disabled, partially or completely. The answer above is wrong. Unemployment is a worker without paid employment this week who is actively seeking such employment. Only about 60% of the unemployed qualify for UI benefits. Disability is when a worker has a relatively permanent medical condition which prevents performance of even one of the essential job functions of the assigned job.

Many people depend on disability insurance income for paying off medical bills and receiving funds for basic necessities in life. If you are receiving income from a disability insurance company, be sure not to subject this income to taxes. Unfortunately, so many people think they have to pay taxes on the income they receive from a disability insurance company. This is simply not true. You are not required to pay taxes on any of the income you receive from a disability insurance company. Be wary of companies that inform you paying taxes on disability insurance is essential because it is not necessary.

There are four steps to apply for disability insurance in Ontario. First, one must have a medical provider fill out a medical form that describes their disability in detail. Second, one must sign a consent form that allows the government to collect information about their medical history. Third, one must fill out a form that describes in their own words how their disability impacts their life and ability to work. Finally, one must return the package to the Disability Adjudication Unit who will make a decision about the application.

Disability insurance was designed to provide a monthly income or to replace your paycheck in case you can't work due to an illness or accident. Unlike Major Medical health insurance which pays part of the doctors visits fees, medications, treatments cost, the disability insurance benefit can be used for anything you need, like a gap for medical deductibles or co-payments, or utilities, groceries, mortgage payments, or any other expenses including alternative treatments, vacation, etc. There is no limitation on how you should spend your disability insurance benefits. Some disability insurance policies have additional benefits paid specifically for home adjustments (for example, to make your home wheelchair accessible) - this additional benefits can only be spent for that purpose.

Disability insurance covers your ability to earn an income. If for any medical reason (illness or injury) you are not able to perform 100% of your duties of your occupation, you are considered disabled or partially disabled. Depending on the definition of disability on your policy, you may even get paid a disability insurance benefit even if you can still work part time or have a loss of income of minimum 15-20% due to your disability/ health issue.
