GAO has released a report on overlapping disability and unemployment benefits. The Social Security DI and Unemployment Insurance (UI) programs both provide assistance to workers who have lost their income. Existing rules and definitions result in a limited number of individuals being eligible for overlapping DI and UI payments. GAO was asked to determine the extent to which individuals have received DI and UI benefits concurrently.
