Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX to answer your question, I need some more information.On your Unemployment application, did you indicate that you were available and looking for work?
i wanted to file for disability simultaenously
and thought they would piggy back
because i have 6 weeks of disability.
then i wanted the unemployment to kick in.
there wasn't an area to explain.
i was on their website, and there is a way to correct errors.
are you there?
Hi, I'm back, I stepped over to talk with another customer.
so i have not yet filed for disability
just the unempployment
but want to know if i can withdraw my unemployment
and get disability first
Well, the statement that you are available to work is contradictory to a disability claim.Yes, I believe that you can withdraw the unemployment claim. The way to do that is to call the number on the website, explain the situation to the agent; he/she can tag your online application, and it will wait.
i can say that i made a mistake
as i was in a rush
and wanted to fiel
in a timely manner
since i just go laid off
is there a timeline that one must follow
for unemployment benefits
after havign been laid off?
Just be upfront ... tell them about the disability claim.Off the cuff, I don't know if there's a timeline for unemployment benefits, I've never encountered one. You will have to tell them that you went through a period of disability, but if its short term, it shouldn't matter. You can ask the agent at the same phone call.
