Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. I want to separate from my husband, or divorce but I'm also trying for ssdi. I don't know if it will effect income.
A: SSDI generally does not have income or asset limits, so it generally doesn't matter whether you're married, separated or divorced. But you have to have been working and paid payroll taxes for 5 out of the last 10 years before you became disabled to technically qualify for SSDI.
Q. Do adult dependents qualify for parent's social security when the parent retires?
A: Possibly, but I am only aware of Disabled Adult Child (DAC) benefits - if the adult dependent has been disabled since prior to age 22, then the adult dependent can get SSA benefits from the parent's work record. But only if the parent is deceased, disabled, or is collecting SSA retirement benefits.
Q. Does collecting unemployment affect the amount you currently receive from social security disability.
A: Generally when you apply for unemployment, you are stating that you are ready, willing and able to work full-time. You are getting SSDI because you told SSA that you can't work full-time. So there could be a problem there. However, the CARES Act temporarily changed the requirements for Unemployment, so there are much more complicated rules for unemployment applications. This is an area where it would benefit you to contact a lawyer that specializes in Employment Law.
