Been laid off, been on disability due to treatment for cancer.

unemployed_personQ) I had been laid off from work and after that I have been on disability due to treatment for cancer. The disability benefits have finished. Now I am looking for a job but need my unemployment benefits in the interim.How do I file for unemployment benefits in this situation? What should I give as my last day of work and how to explain why I did not file for disability right away after the layoff. Do I give the end date of my disability as a last day of work? It does not make sense. Could someone advise?

A) You should file for unemployment benefits as soon as possible. Your last day of work should be the date you were laid off, not the end date of your disability. When filling out the application, you can explain that you were on disability due to treatment for cancer and that your benefits have since ended. You can also provide any medical documentation that supports your disability claim.

It is not necessary to explain why you did not file for disability right away after the layoff. Filing for unemployment benefits is different from filing for disability benefits, and you may be eligible for one or both depending on your circumstances. As long as you meet the eligibility requirements for unemployment benefits, you should be able to receive them.

When you file for unemployment benefits, make sure to provide accurate and complete information about your employment history, including your layoff and disability periods. You may also be required to attend job search seminars or provide evidence that you are actively looking for work. Good luck with your job search.

You can always apply for unemployment. However you must meet your states qualifying requirements in order to receive benefits. However, unless you have been medically cleared to return to work, you will more that likely be denied until you are. In order to collect unemployment, you must be able to work, actively looking for work, and able to accept work if offered. Please call your local unemployment office for more clarification.
