Posted by: Aug 03, 2016By Brian Stutheit

Are you eligible for unemployment payments after receiving workers’ compensation?

If you lost your job because of an accident or injury on the job and your received temporary total disability (TTD) compensation, you are eligible to receive unemployment insurance payments after the end of the disability period.  You must meet other eligibility requirements, such as being able to do work.  You must file your unemployment claim within 4 weeks immediately following the termination of your workers’ compensation temporary disability payments.  Additionally, you must file your claim within three years of the start of TTD.  You are not eligible to collect unemployment payments for weeks filed beyond 3 years.
