Can I Receive Unemployment or Other Benefits While Applying for Social Security Disability?

I am often asked whether you can receive unemployment or other benefits if you are applying for Social Security Disability.  The quick answer is maybe.  Because the rules and regulations surrounding multiple benefits can become extremely convoluted and complex, and because each individual case is unique, it is best to consult with an experienced Social Security Disability attorney at the Barnett, Barnett & Wilson.  We are a dedicated team of attorneys that is locally based here in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale area.  We are not a national law firm who will pawn you off to a paralegal.  We understand Social Security Disability laws and the ways in which it could interact with other state and federal programs, regulations, and laws.

The possible scenarios are, of course, endless, but it could be the case that having been injured on the job, you are receiving workers’ compensation benefits. However, if it has now been determined that you are permanently disabled, and you wish to file for Social Security disability, your attorney will be able to review your case to determine what compensation you may be entitled to and whether or not one needs to end before the other can legally begin. The same would hold true if you were receiving unemployment compensation or other forms of government subsidy at the time you applied for your Social Security disability benefits.

Social Security Disability attorney Jason G. Barnett has amassed over 20 years of experience in dealing with such cases.  Jason has the expertise necessary to analyze your case and determine the best course of action for you to take.  Get the help you need by calling the Barnett, Barnett & Wilson today.
