I am fifty-one-year-old female, and I was laid off from my job. I was then diagnosed with anal cancer two weeks later. My doctor said not to apply for unemployment compensation, as my chances were excellent to get disability benefits. I was denied. Can I still apply for unemployment benefits five months later? A=I am desperate. I can’t work, I have no money and soon I will have no place to live.
You should appeal the disability decision. Hire a lawyer, if necessary.
