Hi, I have primary progressive MS. I have been dragging myself to work each day because I cannot afford to not work. I am a single parent of a 9 year old with no other income coming in. I just found out my position at the high school I work for is being eliminated for the next fiscal shool year so my last day of work will be June 30. I will be eligable to claim unemployment. I live/work in NH. I was wondering with disabilty. If I file for disabilty, will the time I am collecting unemployment be counted as my unemployed days towards disability? I know it is a min of 6 months you need to be unemployed before you can start collecting. I am hoping that I can at least collect unemployment for some of that time. I don't know how they can expect anyone to go 6 months without income as it is. Are we suppose to live on the streets and beg for food? I am devasted that I will be losing my job. I have been doing everthing I can to make things work. I know with disabilty I will only be getting about $1000 a month. I pay that in rent alone now. And I will not have health insurance or be able to continue any of my medications because of that for about 2-2 1/2 years after I get disabilty. NH does not have mandatory health insurance laws. So heaven forbid I need any kind of treatment for a while. If anyone that knows anything about this stuff or has been through it, please give me some advice. I am feeling so lost, ill and depressed right now.
