Hi, Did not know you were able to collect SS and unemployment. My question is, can you collect unemployment if you receive SS and a pension. Thank you.

Hi,

My expertise is limited to Social Security benefits, so all that I can tell you is that you can be paid Social Security benefits regardless of whether or not you're drawing unemployment. Unemployment benefits do not count toward the Social Security earnings test limits (https://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/whileworking.html).
