can you collect unemployment when you are on fmla in florida

I will be out for 6 weeks due to surgery and will be on FMLA. Can I collect unemployment during this time?



Hi Tammie,

No. You must be able and available to work in order to collect unemployment. If you do not have Short-Term Disability insurance .. unemployment in Florida is not an option because they do not have temporary disability unemployment.

All states do have the option of having this program, but only California, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Hawaii have some type of program that helps people in your position.

Sorry,

Chris
