Am I eligible for unemployment if laid off because of medical reasons

unemployed_personQ) Am I eligible for unemployment if I get laid off because of medical reasons for my car accident?

A) One of the general rule for unemployment benefit eligibility is to “Be physically able to work”. IF you are laid off because of medical reasons this means you are not physically able to work. You also need to “Be available for work which means to be ready and willing to immediately accept work” and “Be actively looking for work.” – You may want to inquire about getting disability benefits.

  1. If you were injured on the job I recommend you look at applying for Disability benefits. In order to qualify for unemployment insurance benefits you need to be ™”available for full-time work for which you are fitted by prior training or experience”.
