My job was discontinued after 15 years on December 31, 2011. I turned 64 on this day also. I received severance pay for 3 months and when that ended I started receiving unemployment benefits. I was not planing on retiring yet as I am in good health and enjoy working. The unemployment is no where near what I was making and it is hard to get by on this. All the jobs in the area start at about what I get on unemployment (which so far I have not been able to find one in my field anyway). Would I be able get SS benefits plus unemployment and how would it work if it were possible? Would the SS take away from unemployment and make the payments less or just in the week I would receive the SS?
