AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

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

En español | Yes. Unemployment benefits are not counted as wages under the Social Security annual earnings test, so they won’t affect your Social Security benefits. However, some states will reduce an unemployment benefit if you collect Social Security. Check with your state unemployment office.
