I was denied unemployment and was off work due to herniated discs

unemployed_personQ) I applied and was denied unemployment in November 2013. I was off work due to herniated discs In back. I was available for “light duty” work and was told by employer I had to wait until ready for full duty. I applied for unemployment to cover my bills while off work. When contacted by State Unemployment office I was told my employer stated “I Quit” and my benefits were denied. I’m still unemployed without income and need my case reevaluated please. I’ve constantly searched for work. I also lost my health insurance which has halted my medical process on my back. Thank You.

A) I’m sorry to hear that you were denied unemployment benefits. A denial of benefits can be appealed in many cases, so you may want to consider filing an appeal if you believe you are eligible for benefits.

If you were off work due to herniated discs, it is possible that you may be eligible for disability benefits or workers’ compensation benefits, depending on the circumstances of your injury and your employment. These programs provide financial assistance to workers who are unable to work due to a disability or work-related injury.

To explore these options, you may want to contact your state’s disability or workers’ compensation office. They can provide information on eligibility requirements, the application process, and what benefits you may be entitled to receive.

It’s important to note that disability and workers’ compensation benefits may not be available in all situations and may have different eligibility requirements than unemployment benefits. So, it’s a good idea to review your options carefully to determine what programs may be the best fit for your situation.

If you were injured on the job I recommend you look at applying for Disability benefits. In order to qualify for unemployment insurance benefits you need to be ™”available for full-time work for which you are fitted by prior training or experience”.
