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.

Some states used to reduce an unemployment benefit if you collected Social Security, but that is no longer the case. All states that had such policies have repealed them.
