What would you like to do?
Yes. You can continue collecting unemployment benefits whether you move to another location within the state or to a different state entirely, as long as you meet program requirements and the area you move to has comparable (or better) work opportunities for someone with your skills as the area you left. The representatives at your local unemployment office can assist you with transferring your claim.

One opinion: Actually you can. I just moved from California to Colorado and EDD interviewed me again, but I still qualify for it. I explained that I could not find work where …I was. Transfers: Also, I am pretty sure you can transfer the benefits. IE: if you start your claim in California and then move to Texas you will still be able to collect in Texas but not at the same amount as in CA, probably a little less. This is what they told me about 5 years ago when I was on unemployment and was thinking of moving to another state. YES. my brother moved from CA to MN and collected the maximum CA unemployment there. He also filed after moving to MN. If you are currently receiving benefits in one state and you move to another, you still receive benefits from the original state. You receive benefits from the state in which you worked for the past 18 months. All you have to do is provide your new address to your "original" state of residence and they will mark you as an interstate payee. You then continue to file your weekly certification as normal. You will receive the exact same amount of benefits, it does not change. You are required to seek employment in the new state you moved to. It's that simple. I know this to be true because I recently moved and just took these steps. from A GUIDE TO BENEFITS AND EMPLOYMENT SERVICES/ EDD CALIFORNIA page 17. "if you move to another state and still want to claim benefits, call EDD for instructions. Failure to contact the office promptly could result in delay or loss of your benefits" If you move after starting to get benefits in California, simply continue to follow the rules of the program and send in your biweekly claim forms to the same office as always. I just moved from California to Massachusetts and was receiving UI benefits in California. I heard that you still can so I changed my address on the form you have to submit to them with the new address change. I have yet to receive a check because they put my claim on hold. They told me I am schedule to a phone interview but that's not until another 2 weeks and it still doesn't determine if I will be approved or not. Be prepared to wait at least 2 months to receive a check if they determine you are eligible. You may file a claim for unemployment benefits any time you have been separated from employment. However, the laws governing the state where you performed the work will determine eligibility based upon the reason you were separated.
Well, it depends on if you were fired or if you left voluntary, I left NY to come to GA in 1994, and I left under some pretty stressful circumstances, but because I left my jo…bs voluntarily I did not get unemployment from NY, but when I was fired in 2005 by a major wholesale company in CA, I was able to get the unemployment when I moved to GA, I had to fight for it, but I got it!!!! So whatever state you left, make sure you check on-line or by calling the labor dept to find out if you are able to get your unemployment. All I can say is good luck to you, it took me approximately 6 months to finally get a check. Another answer:Yes you can, as long as you qualified in the state you worked in and cleared with them that you were moving and complied with their conditions.
If you qualified, you can collect unemployment from Texas, the "liable state", but not from the state you move to.
I did. I received lump sum severance and collected unemployment in NYC. Of course, the regular one week waiting period for unemployment still goes so make sure to apply …immediately. Actually, if you think about it, a lump sum payment is really part of your compensation package, so as long you don't keep receiving a paycheck after that, then why shouldn't you be entitled to unemployment like everyone else? I imagine it would be different if you cotinue to receive a paycheck every week for a specified amount of time after you were let go though...

Can you collect state unemployment benefits and social security widows benefits in New York at the the same time?
US Social Security benefits would have no effect on your ability to collect NY State unemployment benefits. They are two entirely separate programs and one does not preclude t…he other.
Can you collect Social Security and unemployment benefits at the same time in the state of Connecticut?
Yes, as long as you qualify for both of them individually.
Moving out of state after a layoff doesn't disqualify you -- the program is based on wages and payroll taxes, not geography. If you move after starting to get benefits in Cali…fornia, simply continue to follow the rules of the program and send in your biweekly claim forms to the same office as always. If you apply after moving, the process might get a bit tricky but is usually doable. Source: http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-cover22-2009feb22,0,2705204.story If you move out of state, schedule an interview with EDD as they will put your payments on hold but won't inform you about it. Any travel longer than 4.5 hours might result in a deduction for that day, even if it is a Sunday, as you are obligated to be able to come in for an interview on any given moment.

Yes, if you were already collecting it. Contact Oregon's office for directions in modifying your claim due to your move.

Can you draw unemployment if you have to move within the same state because of a job transfer for your husband?
Because each state has its own criteria, the answer can be difficult. Some states vary the distance moved, for qualifying or not allowable. Others also allow your moving becau…se the spouse does. You need to check with your own state's employment office for clarification.
Yes, if you're referring to Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, you can receive disability and unemployment compensation if you c…an meet the eligibility requirements of both programs. A few states, such as Illinois, Louisiana, South Dakota (until fund increases), Virginia (until fund increases), and Utah apply an offset of 50% for people receiving both social security benefits and unemployment compensation. This means your weekly unemployment check is reduced by 50% of the weekly value of your Social Security Disability (SSDI) check. [Minnesota applies a 50% offset only for people who began receiving disability benefits after their work separation. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is not counted as income for offset purposes.] While federal law and the Social Security Administration don't prohibit people on disability from receiving unemployment checks, state unemployment regulations require all unemployment recipients to be actively seeking, willing and able to accept suitable work (comparable to previous employment or something appropriate to your skill set). This may creates a conflict if the unemployment commission in your state requires you to find full-time work, because you're generally not eligible for Social Security disability benefits if you're capable of full-time work. When you file for unemployment compensation, all states require you to provide your Social Security number (authorized under Internal Revenue Code of 1954, 26 U.S.C. 85, Sections 6011(a), 6050(b), 6109(a), P.L. 98-369, Section 1137(a)(1)). They will share information about your claim with other government agencies to determine how unemployment affects other benefits you may receive, such as Medicaid and food stamps. Under most state unemployment statutes, you must be ready, willing and able to accept employment, be actively seeking work, and must accept any reasonable employment offer for which you are qualified (unless there are legitimate, extenuating circumstances for refusing the offer), or your unemployment compensation can (and probably will) be terminated. If you are physically incapable of doing qualifying work under your state unemployment agreement, the state may consider you ineligible for benefits, or may consider your claim fraudulent if they later discover you're too disabled to fulfill your contractual agreement. Under these circumstances, you will be terminated from unemployment and may be required to repay any compensation you received. Private Insurance You may or may not be able to collect both if receiving disability payments from a private insurance policy. Check the provisions of your contract, or contact your insurance agent for more information.

Can you collect unemployment benefits if you move 2 states away and can not due the commute no longer?
I am not totally sure what you are asking but you cannot collect unemployment if you are the one moving and cannot commute to the job. You can collect unemployment if it was t…he other way around and your company moved two states away and you did not want to move because courts will often look at that as being forced out of your job at no fault of your own. You will however still need to meet all the other requirements to qualify for unemployment. If it is merely for your convenience and not one of the allowable "quits" as defined by your state's employment security department, no, you would not be eligible.
In Texas Law
Can a person collect unemployment benefits and workmans compensation benefits at the same time in the state of Texas?
