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).

Unemployment Payments and the Law Each state pays its unemployed workers from the pool of unemployment taxes it collected from employers, based on their number of employees and their turnover history. The formulae is different for each state. According to the Related Links below the state collects… payroll taxes from employers, based on their turnover rate. This became a law under the Federal Social Security Act and is administered by the individual states. The only time employers pay employees directly is when the employer has an agreement to do so by the state that collects the taxes from them, in order to opt out of paying the tax. The employer does not receive a bill for payments made, but the state does adjust his tax rate based on his turn over experience. The taxes collected pays for both operational costs as well as benefit payments. Who pays for unemployment benefits? Each state has its own unemployment insurance law and operates its own program. As usual, they may do things a little different down Texas Way. The state issues you the check from its account, So in that since it appears that the state pays you the benefit check, But then the employer is actually the one who funds that state account for that disbursement. So in actuality, the employer is still paying it. In Fact, Unemployment commission employees here will not even call it "Unemployment Insurance" anymore because it is in effect not insurance, They use the term "Unemployment Compensation" instead, or at least when talking to the employer. Here, your former employer pays 100% of the Unemployment Tax as well as any unemployment compensation disbursements you receive. Your unemployment disbursement will come from the states account. But, in Texas, the employer or the employers Payroll processor "Does" get billed, (actually the department calls it an assessment) for every payment made during a recipients benefit term. This is in addition to employer contributions for current active payroll. the assessment ends generally one month after the associated former employees benefits expire and the assessment is met. The amount of this additional monthly assesment is equivelant to the recipients monthly compensation. Turn over is not a factor here because each employer is responsible for his own. So Basically the employer reimburses any funds disbursed by the state through assessment. This of course can be administered differently by other states. Each state levies payroll taxes on it's employers. The employees are not charged for this. The state collects the unemployment funds from the employers through an unemployment tax based on the business "Actuall Payroll". it has nothing to do with a turnover rate. The state, in turn, pays the benefits to the out of work person if s/he qualifies with the state's regulations. Answer The employer pays into a state fund (SUI) and a federal fund (FUTA). Below is a link explaining how it works in Arizona. It generally works the same way in other states. (MORE)
You will need proof that you have left your last job, if you had one, and Identification papers (birth certificate / drivers license, passport). Then you will have to go to the local welfare offices and probably queue for a while, ask FIRST who you have to see regarding unemployment. Then give them …your papers and sign with them for unemplyment. Not a pleasant task, but they're usually polite and understanding officers. (MORE)
One can file for unemployment any time they are laid off, furloughed, or terminated from an employer covered by unemployment insurance.

Such circumstances may be a decree from the President or Governor due to widespread economic hardship, or massive layoffs from a key employer. (MORE)
What state do you file for unemployment benefits in if the state in which you reside is different than the state in which you work?
You file wherever you live. Even if you worked in California and now live in a different state. The current state will send your application to the other state.
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 importantly, is that under almost any instance of you receiving unemployment that you weren't supposed to, it is because of yo…ur 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. (MORE)
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. (MORE)
Hospital shut down day shift hrs worked offered night shift at another hospital they own twenty miles away if turned down can unemployment be filed?
Nope. If they made the genuine offer in another office and you turned it down, that is considered a "voluntary quit" ... you cannot collect unemployment if you refuse to work. These days, traveling 20 miles for work is nothing - I did 24 miles each way for 25 years - if it's where the work is and wo…rking means earning money, it's far better than not having any income.

Can you file for social security at age 62 and receive unemployment benefits in Ohio at the same time?
If you are eligible for social security retirement (and I think for your age group the eligible age is 65), go ahead and apply for it while you apply for unemployment at the same time. The unemployment will come in first, and receipt of it shouldn't affect your retirement benefits. You can earn as m…uch as you want outside of retirement. (MORE)
Can i claim unemployment benefits and also make cash on the side without having to report it when i file taxes?
You are required to report all income on your tax returns, including unemployment benefits and "cash on the side." However, in 2009 the first $2400 of the benefits that you report may not be federally taxable.
Sure, the BK is not a factor and won't even be anything the UI cares or knows about.
why not? In some contries. an act is presumed to be illegal unless it is specifically legalized. In America, if something is not specifically prohibited, such as applying for unemployment while filing a lawsuit is no prohibited, so have at it..

Does your past employer pay for your unemployment benefits or are they contacted that you have filed for unemployment?
yes and no. it is required for an employer to pay a certain percentage of your unemployment, but most employers have unemployment insurance that pays the claim. so the employer just pays his premium. To receive unemployment, the state has to determine that you were laid off, voluntarily quit or f…ired from your job. So they contact the employer and question you to see the conditions of your termination. Lay offs usually immediately qualify unless the employer offered a voluntary lay off. Discharges or firings depend upon the situation as to whether you will be found eligible or not. Voluntary quits are harder to prove the situation was untenable but there are cases were you can be found eligible. Every situation is unique and treated as such. (MORE)

No.States, almost without exception, require you to have worked in the last 5 quarters (15 months) to even be eligible. If you have not worked since 2003 you are definitely outside the minimum time frame.

In some states, the extension is automatic and in others you have to apply. For safety, check with your own state's unemployment office.

No. Most states use formulas based on wages earned in the base period, and a work history of some minimum time period. The calculations can also be used to determine partial unemployment benefits, too. As each state makes their own determinations, check with your state's office for clarification.
