It's my understanding that in order to be on unemployment compensation, one has to sign a weekly statement that they are "able, willing and capable" of working.
When completing the SSDI forms, one has to state that they aren't capable of working - which is direct conflict with the statements required for unemployment comp.!
Has anyone run into issues doing this? Is it necessary to give up worker's comp. in order to apply for disability?
Does it make a difference that one is Federal and the other State???
Any experience shared would be greatly appreciated. My son's in this pickle right now. We honestly don't know how to proceed.
