If I got disability retirement would I qualify for unemployment insurance

Q) What about for disability retirement? If I applied and got approved for disability retirement (not regular retirement) from government, would I qualify for unemployment insurance if I can still work and apply to other jobs?

A) According to the social security administration – 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.
