I am getting social security, and retirement. The place I work is closing. Will I be able to draw unemployment?

Q) I’m 77 and getting social security, a retirement check and work part time. The place I work will be closed for 6 weeks. Will I be able to draw unemployment. Thank you

A) Social Security does not count unemployment benefits as earnings. They do not affect retirement benefits. However, income from Social Security may reduce your unemployment compensation. Contact your state unemployment office for information on how your state applies the reduction. https://faq.ssa.gov/link/portal/34011/34019/Article/3741/Will-unemployment-benefits-affect-my-Social-Security-benefits
