December 26, 2013
Q) I just lost my job due to running out of fmla. i will be getting some disability, but does not cover my wages. i am not sure if i will be able to do this type of work again. and will be off for a number of weeks yet before i could look for work. do i also qualify for unemployment?
A) You cannot collect disability and unemployment benefits at the same time. Either you are physically able to work and can collect unemployment, or you are unable to work and can collect disability. You cannot be both able to work and unable to work at the same time.
