    Answered . You can get one or the other but not both. You get disability benefits if you are unable to work. You get unemployment benefits only if you are ready willing and able to work. By definition you cannot qualify for both.

    Good luck to you.

This does not sound like an SS disability question, so you may in fact e able to get both - not enough here to tell.

    I will try to repost under employee benefits as that may help
