I just need to know if NYS is one of the states that DO allow me to collect temporary unemployment until I get clearance for a much less paying job & way less physical job PLEASE HELP im very overwhelmed have NO where to turn cant get answers anywhere on line etc




Hi Dee,

NY is one of the states that has a program most often called something along the lines of a temporary disability unemployment program. (The info is provided on DOLETA's website.) However, as made abundantly clear, the programs and how they are funded vary by state.

The length of the coverage available to you until release3d by a doctor is not something I know off the top of my head, as you're not really asking about unemployment insurance benefits because you are in NY which doesn't work these type of payments in conjunction with the UI program.
