Can you collect unemployment in Texas if you are self-employed?
My feeling is that you can, as long as you paid yourself a salary, issued yourself a W-2 and paid state unemployment taxes through your payroll. And are now unemployed due to losing your business or income source. That's just my educated guess.

Thanks for the feedback!
Is there a disqualification period to collect unemployment if you quit your job in Texas to relocate to California to be with your husband?
Yes in Texas you can file unemployment if you quit your job to relocate with your husband. There is a disqualification period of 6-25 weeks.
This answer depends on a few things. First, it depends on what state you are claiming benefits in (not which one you are living in or received the pension/retirement from). Ge…nerally speaking, if you paid into the retirement, then they do not count it against you. If the retirement was 100% employer paid, then they do deduct some or all of your unemployment based on the amount you receive monthly. The only way the unemployment office knows if you receive a pension/retirement is if YOU tell them. They have no other way of finding out and most people are honest and they are the ones that end up getting screwed!
Yes, as long as you qualify for each of them individually.
You are usually eligible to receive unemployment benefits even if you were fired so long as you were not fired for "gross misconduct," the definition of which is determined by… the state unemployment agency and seems, in Texas, to include "work-related misconduct, neglect, or mismanagement" according to a Texas Unemployment website (see "Related Links"). You have nothing to lose by filing for unemployment benefits and should do so right away. Include all pertinent information so the unemployment agency has as much information as possible. They will contact your previous employer and will allow you to dispute anything your employer says, but make sure you are being honest and have documented the situation well.
According to the Related Link below you would not be eligible for unemployment benefits because you would not be available for full time employment, a requirement.
Your weekly benefit amount will be between $58 and $392 depending upon the wages you earned.
You cannot collect absolute retirement (meaning not returning to work) and unemployment benefits because the latter requires you to, among many things, continuously seek full …time employment.
I just called TWC and you can collect benefits. However, it must not interfere with your job search or obtaining full time work. For example, I'm taking classes on line …and this wouldn't interfere with my job search or me finding full time work. After I've found full time work I can still attend school.
Might be eligible for Workman's Comp: If the surgery was due to working conditions you might be eligible for workman's compensation, but this is not the same as unemployment.… To be eligible for unemployment, you have to be ready, willing, available and ABLE to work, and if you said you could not work, then you are not eligible. If the injury occurred while on the job, you probably are eligible for Workers Comp. Whether not being able to work, otherwise, the claim would depend on the rules of your state's employment security office. Might be eligible to collect unemployment: I'm not certain that's entirely true. If he/she is laid up in bed, then in all likelyhood they would not qualify. It all depends on the nature of the injury/recovery. If, however, they were able to perform modified duty such as sitting in a chair doing data entry, then they would be willing to work. If their specific job does not provide for that type of light duty or there are no available positions to fill, he/she may be entitled to unemployment. i.e. Willing to work, able to work, no work available. Provided they are still employed by the same company.
Apparently you can under certain circumstances. Check out the Related Link below, under "Does My Job Separation Affect My Benefits" item #2.
I have no insurance and can't qualify for medicaid because you are collection unemployment I live in Texas does anyone have an idea how to get gallbladder surgery in this situation?
Have you checked with your county hospital? Many TX counties, like Dallas, have health plans through the county hospital system just for people in your situation. You may ne…ed to check with the hospital system for their specific requirements, as each one is a little different. . I know how hard it is. I'm like you, collecting UI benefits with an old car worth about $3000, but that's too much for getting Medicaid or anything else. Unfortunately, my county has no such plan, and I can't get Dallas' plan since I'm not a Dallas County resident so there is nothing for me. But some counties do have this option. . However, if you are like me and live in a county without a plan like this... sorry to say, but there is really nothing in Texas to cover us. Unless you speak Spanish only, have a deep tan and 9 kids, and your last name ends with a Z of course...
If you work a "free lance" or "pt/temp" job, you must claim it with Unemployment. If the gross money you earned was more than what U.E. pays for the week, you will not receive… a pymt. for that week. You must give all info. re: the co. who hired you for the job, date worked, gross pay. The week you don't get paid for will be added to the end of your U.E. time period. You won't lose it. Only problem: Unemployment sends forms to be filled out by the company that you worked for that that make it appear like the company hired you and it sort of freaks out the company so they don't want to use you again.
NO- BECAUSE YOU ARE EMPLOYED!
Yes, as long as you qualify under both programs.
In Texas Law
