Unemployment plus social security benefits. Can you collect unemployment and social security?
I have worked as a clinic aide at a jefferson county colorado school for 5 years. I was told yesterday they have no funds to keep me I did a good job. I draw social security 651 a month I am 71 able and willing to work. Can I draw unemployment in colorado till I find a job?
You lucked out. Colorado used to reduce weekly unemployment benefits by up to 50 percent due to receipt of social security benefits.
They changed their law last year and now DO NOT reduce unemployment benefits due to social security benefits.
This is a concern for many people and I have answered the question many times.
But since we are now in 2010 and some states made changes last year.
I thought I would again show everyone where they can find this information, regardless of what state they live in.
After clicking this link you will need to click the current year .. then the Nonmonetary Eligibility link and then go to Table 5-17.
