What Is Meant By Able To Work?

The applicant must be physically “able” to perform work in his/her trade or occupation. If not, the applicant may receive benefits if he/she has submitted medical evidence of his/her ability to do other types of work. If an applicant is ill and unable to work during one or more days of a normal workweek, he/she may not be considered “able to work” and may not be entitled to benefits for that week.
