My 43 year old nephew had to leave his job because of job stress related migraine headaches. He was hospitalized in 2010 and was recently released from the neurologist care. He's been out of work for 10 months and has not filed for unemployment benefits. He was educated in special education classes K-12th grade. He worked for a small food store chain in the Chicago area for 15 years. New management took over and the working conditions caused this stress. My question is...can he file for unemployment benefits since he's the one who left his job? All the medical issues can be documented. Any phone number or email contact that will help him would be appreciated. Thank you.
I am 55 years old and on unemployment. Also am very ill. Can I apply for Social Security benefits as well?
