In most cases you cannot collect unemployment after maternity leave. If your maternity leave is over, your doctor has determined that you can go back to work. Unemployment is intended for those who are laid off from work.

Yes, you can still collect unemployment benefits after receiving severance pay.

These 2 benefits are separate and distinct from the other -- severance pay is the consideration given by the employer after the employee's dismissal or termination from employment either as a reward for the service or in exchange for waiving his right to sue the employer.

Some severance packages actually include the benefit of uncontested unemployment benefits.

No. Having a baby is not considered a disability. The other issue is that if someone is collecting unemployment, that typically means that they no longer have benefits from their previous employer. In other words, most people who are not employed full time do not have short-term disability insurance.

What would happen if you collected unemployment while incarcerated?

Collecting it would be illegal, as you can not comply with the conditions for receiving it. Return what you received and ask for it to be temporarily(?) discontinued. When you get out, there may be time left in your benefit period (normally 52 weeks to collect a normal 26 weeks of payments) to receive some of the benefits.
