Can you file for unemployment benefits if you were hospitalized?
You can FILE for unemployment benefits but they will be paid only for the period when you were available for work. For example, if you were hospitalized between 8/01/2014 and 08/15/2014, came home and felt you could return to work on 08/20/2014, your 'waiting period' would start on 08/20/2014 (you should obtain a return to work note from your doctor).

Yes. You should receive a statement from unemplyoment showing what you were paid.
You probably won't get any protection/relief for that.. First, overpayments and amounts due to most governmental agencies are given a very high priority.. Second, and more i…mportantly, is that under almost any instance of you receiving unemployment that you weren't supposed to, it is because of your filing a claim that you weren't alllowed to, or hiding your current employment of such, all of which to collect you swore something different, and is actually able to be pursued as a fraud and crime. The agency is giving you a break allowing you to make it good. Illegal acts, like fraudulently getting UI, are not going to get any protection by the BK court.
When, (or shortly after as some programs have small waiting periods), you become unemployed. Many, (if not most) Cos continue operating, maybe forever, especially in C-11 and …even for some time in C-7 (and in C-7 your division/operations may be bought by someone and continued). You may never become unemployed.
As soon as you become unemployed, you should file for unemployment benefits. It takes time for the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) to process your claim and …calculate your benefits. If everything is in order, you should receive your first benefit check within 2-3 weeks of filing.
No because you have to be able to work
Generally, your base period is for the past 12 months. When you do file they usually will allow only retro-activity to the last week from your filing date, so the longer you w…ait, the less you will receive, because your base period is getting shorter. Each state is different, so you need to file or contact your own state unemployment office for more official information.
Yes, but you have to qualify, by your own state's criteria, regarding wages earned in the base period, amount of wages earned, reason for losing your job, etc. like any other …claimant for compensation
No. If the teacher is between school sessions and has assurances of returning to work when school resumes, she is not eligible.
There is not a "statute of limitations" per se but there are requirements you must meet to be eligible for unemployment benefits in the state of Florida. Among these are that …you made a certain amount of money and worked a certain length of time during a base period, which is usually five quarters preceding your claim (of which you typically must have worked at least two and met the gains threshold).
Look under "State offices" in your local telephone book.
There are too many factors missing in the question. If you qualify, as any other claimant, and are able to comply with all the requirements, and what the source of being hospi…talized, the state you work in, etc. then maybe. Its best, however, to check with your own state's employment security office for clarification of its rules.
If you have been unemployed for 9 years, you don't have a sufficient work history to qualify for benefits.
Not for the reason you give. You have to have a work history in the base year to even be considered eligible.
Anytime that you need unemployment benefits you have to refile. When you refile you will be advised if you are eligible for benefits. Sometimes you will reopen an existing cla…im if it is within the same base period that you were collecting in previously, in which case your unemployment amount will remain the same. However, if you have exhausted your previous benefits and not eligible to open an extension, then the unemployment office will use the new base period, and based on the work that you have completed, you may or may not qualify. File asap, because many states will not allow you to backdate your unemployment to when you first became unemployed. You can always file, but you may not qualify.
First, if you weren't denied benefits, contact the employment security office for an explanation. Second, if you had been denied, you can appeal the decision.
No, The furthest back any state will go and allow benefits is base years starting 4 of the last 5 complete calendar quarters, from the date of application.
Not only can you file a tax return with just unemployment benefits, but in some cases you have to. Unemployment benefits are considered income, and as long as your income is… greater than the filing threshold, you have to file a return. For 2012 the filing thresholds are $9,750 for single filers and $19,500 for a married couple. You should get a 1099-G [Certain Government Payments] summarizing all of the benefits you received throughout the entire tax year.
