Collecting Unemployment Benefits And Applying For Disability Benefits
These are some of the toughest economical times our nation has faced. Unemployment rates are on the rise and approximately 1 out of 10 people cannot find work. But imagine if you were suffering from a physical or emotional impairment that prevents you from performing in the workplace. It would be even harder to get a job in this economy. While you might qualify for disability benefits, the Social Security Administration still has to render you disabled. This could take a long time.
So what is one to do for income while waiting for Social Security to make a decision? Is it legal for a person to collect unemployment benefits while their disability application is pending?
Markhoff & Mittman attorneys Brian Mittman and Scott Daniels will tackle this issue head on as they continue their series of live disability webcasts through blogtalkradio. Mittman and Daniels practice extensively in the area of disability law and New York State workers compensation.
