No. I was recently laid off while on disability. The law in Texas says you have to be able to physically be able to work so if you are on disability you can't work. This is NOT correct!

(Your unemployment income will NOT reduce your disability payment because SS does not consider it to be employment income!)

While drawing 100 percent disability are you allowed to have a job?

Having 100% disability is only gotten if it's proven you are unable to work. If you work while receiving the benefit, they may charge you with fraud, so it's not worth it. Better to show them you're able to work, remove yourself from the benefit and be safe. Now, having said that, if the agency paying you the benefit says you can do some types of work, given your particular disability, at least then you can do so with their knowledge and blessings.
