Heading to the Missouri Supreme Court – Disability and Unemployment

A news article in the St. Louis Post Dispatch came out today regarding the State of Missouri attempting to recover $3,000.00 in alleged over-payments due to also receiving Social Security benefits.  In this case, Social Security and Unemployment talked to each other, came up with a number to be withheld from the claimant’s back pay to cover the overage, and then Missouri came after more money.

The case is to be heard in the fall and it will be interesting to see how the high court handles the issue and if they limit any decision to just Social Security cases.
