has approx. 8 K, with monthly expenses at $2500. I am probably going to try for permanent SSI, so many medical issues. I need some funds right now, RIGHT now!
In order to get unemployment you have to say you are "able and available" for work. In order to get SSI or SSDI you have to say you are "too disabled" to work. Many judges will not award SSDI benefits to someone who is on unemployment. As others have said, since SSI is welfare disability you cannot have income such as unemployment and expect to get welfare disability such as SSI.See question
Can Social security cut me off because of a settlement I just recieved?
SSI or welfare disability is means tested. This means you cannot have resources greater than $2,000 and you cannot have income.
On the other hand, Social Security Disability is not a welfare program so generally a settlement unless it is for workers compensation will not affect Social Security Disability benefits.See question

A sexual assault can be a workers comp case or it can be a personal injury depending upon your state's law. Whether or not one can sucessfully bring a charge depends upon the victim's credibility as opposed to the witnesses who deny anything happened. It would of course help the victim if she had some corroborating evidence.See question

I am not sure about your question. Usually, the company owner carries workers compensation insurance. In your case, it appears the company owners were uninsured. But as to your question, the more different stories you tell about what happened the less credibility you have. I don't think you can retract what you already said but you can certainly try to clarify your story.See question

I am sure it is the LTD carrier. It is a common thing for them to do. Social Security would only be doing it if someone had reported you to the Social Security fraud unit.See question

As my colleagues have said Social Security Disability is a federal program and not state assistance. If you are trying to obtain some kind of state welfare benefits, that will depend upon your total income and assets.See question
I am currently represented by an attorney in my Social Security Case. She is not doing a good job - fails to pursue very strong evidence and fails to communicate with me - How should I proceed?
You can switch attorneys. However, your current attorney may request a fee for what she has done so far on your case. Because of this, a new attorney may refuse your case. I agree that a meeting with this attorney expressing your concerns is a good idea.See question

The general rule is that if a combination of your Social Security and Workers Compensation benefits exceeds 80% of your average weekly wage then your Social Security is reduced for each dollar that it exceeds that 80% figure. That is why your workers comp settlement must be reviewed by your lawyer to make sure there is no offset. There is a way to avoid a Social Security offset in a Workers Compensation settlement by prorating the Workers Compensation settlement over the injured worker's life expectancy. You need to make sure this is done.See question
