Hello Kathleen,

In the state of Maryland, social security benefits do not reduce the amount of your unemployment benefits, and you are able to receive unemployment benefits at the same time as you receive SS benefits.

Please refer to the following Maryland guide on unemployment insurance, page 6, under the paragraph entitled "Receipt of Pension Payments".
