Ask a question, get an answer

Can you receive unemployment and Social Security from a deceased spouse?


The simple answer to this question is yes. You may receive unemployment and be entitled to receive Social Security from a deceased spouse or ex-spouse (if you met the 10 year marriage requirement). Unemployment benefits are given with the assumption that you will be able to look for work and take a job should you find one, and since the Social Security benefit mentioned above is not a disability benefit there is no legal conflict. Therefore, you may receive your unemployment and Social Security at the same time.
