Can I collect unemployment benefits and social security benefits at the same time?

Q) Can I collect unemployment and social security at the same time I am 66 and was laid off last week. I still want to work.

A) You can receive unemployment benefits and Social Security benefits at the same time. Social Security Administration does not count unemployment insurance benefits as earning. However your unemployment benefit may be reduced if you receive benefits from Social Security at the same time with your unemployment benefits. Remember, Social Security has no problem with you receiving income from both sources at the same time.

  1. I’ve been calling for weeks to try to get some help with my PIN number being suspended and my account being locked! Cannot get through on the phone and I have left several messages and still haven’t heard anything! I can’t even get my benefits for this week cause of my account!
