Unemployment and Disability
Posted in: Benefits on September 5th, 2011

ssdiMany people who are applying for Social Security Disability Insurance are also unemployed.  In fact, due to the fact that the economy has gotten so poor over the past few years, there have been more applications for both Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income than ever before.

Can I Get Both?

The short answer is “it depends.” The longer answer is that it depends on the state in which you live.  There are certain states that allow you to collect both Social Security Disability Insurance/Supplemental Security Income and unemployment, and there are others that will only allow you to collect one or the other.  There are also some states that require you to “pay back” unemployment benefits for any month in which the individual in question received SSDI benefits.

It is important to be aware of the laws in your specific state regarding SSDI and unemployment before you apply for both.  It can be a costly mistake to make if you apply for too many forms of benefits in your state – and can result in fines or costly legal transactions.  If you have any question weather or not you are eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance/Supplemental Security Income and unemployment in your state, be sure to look up the answer online, or if you are unsure how to do this, you can always discuss the prospect with a disability lawyer.
