    Was just wondering if any one here ever has applied for Unemployment while not working due to this DD.

    I have applied for LTD and was turned down and I am now getting more exams from different doctors and will appeal in a month or so.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Cheri

    Hey Cheri I hate to say this but I don't think you can draw unemployment and file for SSD or SSI. One of my friends tried to do that and he was told that if he was getting unemployment he had to wait till that ran out before he could file for disability. The reason for that is that while you are on unemployment you are saying that you are able and willing to work and disability you can't be able to work.

    That is what I thought but just was not sure. Thank you much for your help!

    Prayers to you,
    Cheri
