Title: Unemployment & Disability
In the state of Idaho, with few exceptions, when you file for unemployment you claim that you are ready, able, and willing to work. When you file for disability during that same time period, you are telling them that you are unable to sustain any employment. This is an inherent conflict! While it's not a "deal-breaker" for your disability claim, it can certainly cause problems. Let us know if you are receiving unemployment while your disability claim is ongoing so that we can discuss options and ramifications with you.
