    Default Applying for Unemployment After Receiving Disability

    My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: California

    I lost my job in November 2013 and have been on state disability for a year. I want to apply for SSDI but it may take a few months. If I am denied SSDI can I apply for unemployment at that time even though it is longer than a year since I lost my job?

    You can apply any time you want.

    But if you couldn't work because of your disability, I doubt if you'd be eligible for unemployment.

    All you can do is apply and see how it goes.

    Will you even have qualifying wages if it's been more than a year since you've worked? And do you REALLY intend on finding and accepting a job? Has your doctor released you to work?

    You can APPLY for unemployment, yes.

    But unless you are able to work, actively looking for work, and available to accept work if offered, you will not qualify. And even if you are eligible as I just defined, if you have not worked for a year you will likely not have enough qualifying wages, meaning that if you receive any benefit at all, it will be a very tiny benefit.
