If your most recent employer was in CT, and your employer paid unemployment taxes to the state of CT during that employment, then yes, you can collect benefits from CT while r…esiding in ANY state in the US. Check your W-2 statement, and if your employer's state EIN is listed as CT, you're set.
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.
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.
Reasons you can quit and collect unemployment can be found on page 6 of the Handbook in the Related Link below.
If you are collecting Florida unemployment benefits and you move to Connecticut can you continue to collect Florida's unemployment benefits?
Yes, as long as you comply with Florida's regulations concerning the move.
The answer must be Yes, because the Related Link below says (besides the normal requirements) you must report all income received during the benefit week . They will deduct al…l earnings over $50 from your weekly benefit.
Yes, you can transfer your claim from one state to another.
You had to have earnings during the first 4 of the last 5 completed calendar quarters to be eligible. Additional requirements are spelled out in the Related Link below.
How is your unemployment compensation from Georgia affected when you move to Florida while collecting from Georgia?
It isn't affected as long as you have notified Georgia of the move and comply with their requirements concerning it.
Yes, you can collect from them both at the same time, as long as you qualified for each of them.
If you worked for the military you can receive unemployment. You need a copy of your discharge papers to speed up the process. The government has to report the wages to the un…employment office, which can take a few weeks.
If you are collecting unemployment from Connecticut but now reside in Florida what do you do about an extension?
You need to contact the Connecticut office of employment security (or it's equivalent) for advice.
No, to collect unemployment benefits you have to be able and actively seeking full time work, among other requirements, which you cannot while imprisoned. After release, it wo…uld depend on your work history during the base period for Georgia.
If you had a qualifying work history in Georgia (the "liable" state) they would be the one who pays you. You can either contact the Georgia's employment security office or the… New York's (the "agency" state) who would assist you in collecting your benefits from Georgia.
In New York
No, you are not currently able and available in your regular work area and would be unable to be in work right away if offered employment.
If you paid your unemployment taxes then you can. If you didn't pay your unemployment taxes then no you can't.
Not if you are retired and have not held a job which you've lost.
