Definitions for "Disability benefits"
Payments that compensate a disabled employee for loss of income or earning capacity.
If you receive disability payments from New York State or any other state because of a non-work related injury, but are still physically able to perform some work, you may be eligible for Unemployment Insurance benefits. However, you will be required to provide a medical statement, signed by your physician, attesting that you are able to work.
These are benefits that compensate the disabled employee for some portion of his/her loss of earned income.
