Am I eligible for benefits if I am hospitalized or under the care of a physician?
The law requires that recipients of Unemployment Insurance be physically able and available to accept work if offered to them. If you are sick, then you may not be able to work, or available when an employer needs you. Unemployment Insurance should not be confused with disability insurance.
