Effect of unemployment benefits on Social Security

August 7, 2012 by David Luhman

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.

Lump-sum death benefit

June 25, 2013 by David Luhman

At $255, the lump-sum death benefit is not that valuable. Far more valuable are the monthly widow benefit checks which you should have been receiving -- once you reach age 60 or higher.
