If you have a Georgia workers' compensation claim and you are terminated, you can also file a claim for unemployment benefits. There are many reasons you may want to do so. For instance, the workers' comp carrier may be denying your claim for weekly workers' comp benefits. Thus, you may need the unemployment benefits to pay your bills while you are out of work. If you do receive unemployment benefits while you are entitled to work comp weekly benefits, workers' comp will likely take a credit against any unemployment benefits.
