  • CA UI Benefits, Disability California

    I have been unemployed in Ca since Oct 2009. I found out this year that I was pregnant and due sometime in Nov 2011. I know that I will not be able to collect UI benefits right after birth because I will not be "willing & able" to work during my recovery period.

    If I were working I would be able to collect SDI benefits during this time followed by PFL. Under my conditions will I still be able to collect SDI or PFL? If not, what is the time period that my UI benefits will be denied because of Pregnancy recovery?

    Thank you for your help!

    *Prior to becoming unemployed I worked full time for the same company for over 10 years in CA

    You can apply for UI benefits after your recovery from your pregnancy & you
    are ready, willing & able to work/looking for work.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
