Worried that if a job is offered, I am unable to do it, my unemployment will be cut off.

unemployed_personQ) I have recently signed up for unemployment. While signing up I was asked if I had a disability. The appropriate question was not offered for me to answer concerning this. A few years ago I was on disability for my back. Tennessee took several people off disability and I was one of them. I have been working as a security guard for 7 yrs and was laid off. This is the only kind of work that I am able to do and I am worried that if a job is offered to me and I am unable to do it, my unemployment will be cut off.I want to work, but this is the only type of work that I am able to do. Also I am a veteran,but when signing up on line,the question “Are you a veteran” was not offered,so I had to click that I was not a veteran. I didn’t know what else to do. I go to the VA hospital for my medical care and my doctor has said that I am disabled. I even have have a disabled tag on my vehicle. Please respond as soon as possible because I am very concerned. Thank you.

A) Recommend that you visit your nearest unemployment office and speak with a counselor regarding your situation. The options that you seek on line perhaps are not being found because of the uniqueness of your situation. Remember to bring with you your disability diagnosis from the VA hospital.

  1. Worked for company 19 1/2 years, had jury duty they released us saying they did not need us, took the form back to work gave to girls behind the counter like I have done the last 18 years, get called into office an was asked where my form was, I said I turned it in. She says not good enough so sent daughter to go to court get a different one? because they did not get it. A week goes by I get called in again and she asked did I go to jury I said yes but they did not need us and was released, she said why did you not come back to work I said because no one comes back to work if they have 1 day of jury service she said yes you do and out of the whole 3 floors in the building you would not find 1 person that would say yes you have to come back to work. Not even the corporate boss’s wife, which worked their she said nope no one comes back to work, well I get pulled in again and they fire me, can I collect unemployment she said I falsified a time card? what time card I never signed a time card the whole 19 years their? You get signed in when you log into your computer: I had no clue, where all this was coming from? Now they are calling me a thief on top of it? When she fired me I just took my badge off and said you want it that bad take it and left.. I was in shock that they would actually go so low to now call me a thief and for what, no retirement no medical really so out of the blue I am just starting lying and cheating at work really? I hope they all know what karma is! and the next day wow my G.F. calls me from work and says guess what’s on my desk I say what she says its a letter to all the people saying if you go to jury duty you have to come back if they let you go early? wow really! can I get unemployment since I paid into it for 19 half years?
