Can I receive unemployment compensation and workers’ compensation benefits at the same time in Maryland?

Video Transcription:

In Maryland, there are two types of benefits. One is temporary total disability which means that you are temporarily totally disabled from performing the functions of your job. The other is permanent partial disability which is basically your permanency award. If you are receiving temporary total disability, you’re saying that I’m unable to perform my job, therefore, you cannot receive unemployment benefits at the same time. Unemployment you’re saying, “I’m ready, willing and able to work” so they are mutually exclusive.

You can receive unemployment benefits at the same time as your permanent partial disability benefits but not the temporary total disability benefits.
