Should I file for Unemployment?
      #94920 - 04/10/04 08:25 AM

Had to resign (or be fired) from my job due to health problems, missed too much work, and insurance coverage due to falling under minimum hours became issue. No legal issues, everything that could be done on their part and mine was done for over a year. I feel I have a right to Unemployment, I have worked forever, did my job well, and it was due to "no fault of my own". I can look for work, just very flexible hours, less hours, even less stressful job. Should I bother? Anyone went this route?

You should definitely file for unemployment! They let you go!
You could also file for disability. Have you ever become a client of an AIDS organization. Because they can help you connect to services and help you figure out if you should first collect unemployment and then file for disability, etc. Call the largest AIDS organization in your area and figure things out quickly.

Good luck!

I am currently in that same position!
File for State Disability. It only takes a Dr. to certify with a minimal diagnosis (at least in California).
Take the time to plan for the future with a HIV benefits counselor. There are ways to survive without working yourself to death!
E-mail me if you want. Stephen
