What kind of disability?
I can't find anything that says disability payment would be deductible income from unemployment .. unless a state considers SSDI the same as SSI, but here's the main question for me when someone is waiting to get disability.
Are you able and available for any type of work .. right now while you're collecting benefits?
Due to a comment by a federal state program expert, you should read the comments for further information about trying to qualify for SSDI and collecting UI benefits at the same time.
