Thank you for the information and your question. One of the eligibility requirements for receiving unemployment benefits is that the claimant must be "able" and "available" to work full time. So, unless you can accept full time work of some type you would not be eligible for UI benefits. If you can work, then you can apply for benefits, however, it is doubtful that you can be eligible for those benefits if you are also eligible for LTD, which is based on your inability to work.
Please feel free to ask for clarification. If none needed, please take a moment to leave a positive rating in the box above so that I will receive credit for my work. Thank you
That might be the best course of action. It won't hurt to wait a bit to ensure that you have that issue resolve. Hopefully it will be approved.
