Receiving Social Security and unemployment at the same time

Can I receive Social Security benefits and unemployment insurance benefits at the same time?

Unemployment insurance benefits are not counted under the Social Security annual earnings test and therefore do not affect your receipt of Social Security benefits. However, the unemployment benefit amount of an individual may be reduced by the receipt of a pension or other retirement income, including Social Security and Railroad Retirement benefits.

You should contact your state unemployment office for information on how your state applies the reduction.
