Q: Can I receive unemployment compensation and workers’ compensation benefits at the same time?

A: No, not if you are receiving temporary total or permanent total disability benefits as you must be medically able and available for work to qualify for unemployment. For additional information on Unemployment Compensation, you may want to utilize the Unemployment Compensation website at: www.floridajobs.org.
