What would you like to do?
Can you collect unemployment from Connecticut if you move to Georgia?
Was this answer useful?
Thanks for the feedback!
Yes, as long as you qualified for it in Pennsylvania, before the move. There is an interstate agreement between all states that allow a person moving to not lose his benefits …if he followed the rules pertaining to same. The mere act of moving, however, does not make one eligible for the benefits.
Yes, if you meet eligibility requirements for both programs. Connecticut repealed the Social Security offset regulations that reduced unemployment compensation for people wh…o were claiming both benefits. Both Social Security and the State of Connecticut allow workers to collect unemployment and Social Security at the same time without applying a penalty to either check.
Only if you don't tell them about your retirement. I retired Jan 2010 and immediately went to work FT. After 7 months, I was laid off without notice. I applied for unemploymen…t and stated honestly that I receive a military retirement. I am a man of integrity and had no desire to falsify information that could come back to haunt me or even be charged with a crime since it is illegal to falsify information when applying for unemployment. I was told that I did not qualify for unemployment benefits becaus I receive a military retirement. In short, in the state of Georgia, retired veterans will never be eligible for unemployment benefits because our retirement is more than the benefit. What is being lost in all this is that the state requires every employer to pay into the unemployment system for their workers. This means that the state of Georgia gets to keep the money paid by my employer because I can never qualify for unemployment benefits. This is outrageous! I guess my 24 years of service wasn't enough, they now want my unemployment benefits as well. Just their way of saying "Thanks for your service". Good Soldier
Can you collect unemployment benefits and Social Security Disability benefits at the same time in Connecticut?
Yes. Modification: You might collect both IF you are physically, mentally able and available according to "Basic Eligibility Requirements" on page 4 of the Related Link …below. This would mean the Social Security Disability must not be too severe (and SSD investigators thoroughly check out a claimant)
Yes, but you still have to comply with your state's requirements regarding reporting, looking for work, etc. the same as you would by staying put.
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.
North Carolina may be one of few states that don't provide for spousal transfers, etc. Contact the state's employment security office for clarification. Otherwise, loss of job… through no fault of the worker's seems to be the only remedy.
yes its like from florida do colorado.
You would collect from New Jersey, the "liable state".
Yes, you can collect from them both at the same time, as long as you qualified for each of them.
No. You collect from the "liable state", in this case, New York, but you can file through Connecticut, as an "agent state", who would assist you with the claim.
Yes, if you were already collecting it. Contact Oregon's office for directions in modifying your claim due to your move.
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.

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.

Sure, if you worked in Georgia, you file for unemployment with Gerogia.
In Connecticut you can collect unemployment benefits for up to 26 weeks. Part of the stimulus plan the Federal Government has allowed an extension of 20 weeks and an additiona…l 13 weeks for states with an unemployment rate of 6% or more, which includes CT (currently at 8%). So as of now you can collect for up to 59 weeks. The stimulus plan expires Dec 31 2009, it may or may not be extended.

Provided that it actually DID move the operation you were involved in and didn't just close it down and cease operations - - if they offered you a relocation and re-employmen…t package and you refused it, you are probably not eligible. If they just closed down and left all the employees high and dry, you probably will qualify.

yes depending on the state
