What would you like to do?
Can you leave the country while receiving unemployment?
This would depend on the laws of the "liable" state (responsible for your claim against a business in that state). As most states require active job searching, it may depend on length of departure, qualifying job locations, etc. Check with the unemployment office in your state for particulars.

I seriously doubt it... military income is deductable from Alabama state unemployment, and with AL's unemployment as low as it is ($265/week max), any retired military pay wil…l most likely be more and therefore disqualify the retired service member. (Just got my denial letter yesterday.) Which is crap, as I've paid into AL's system for over 20 years & won't be able to use it, now when it would be helpful. Sincerely, -PissedOff
Unemployment insurance is for people who lose their jobs. Disability insurance is for people who can't work due to a medical reason. Your best bet is to apply for s…hort term disability insurance before getting pregnant. Your normal maternity leave will be a covered benefit.
Can employer fire you while you are out on medical leave having surgery and can that employer then tell unemployment that you quit so you cannot collect unemployment compensation?
Answer . If you are employed "at-will," which most people who work without employment contracts are, then yes, your employer can fire you at any time, for any reason.… Your only recourse, aside from unemployment benefits, would be a possibility of lawsuit if your employer wrongfully terminated you, such as on the basis of disability discrimination. The employer "can" also tell the unemployment insurance office that you quit. It is in their best financial interest to prevent you from successfully claiming unemployment benefits, and in a hostile situation such as this, the employer will often lie and distort facts in order to make it appear that you either quit voluntarily, or were fired for misconduct--in other words, for something that was your fault, not theirs. However, if you did not quit, you can fight their denial and still get unemployment benefits. You'll need to gather all documentation regarding your medical leave, as well as educate yourself about your employer's claim (Why did they say you quit? What is their evidence?) and your best arguments against it. Employers in general don't have great track records winning against employees in unemployment claims when it comes to medical issues...and they are probably hoping that you won't know how to fight it, and will just give up.
You cannot collect unemployment while you collect wages, so if you are paid while on maternity leave, you probably cannot collect unemployment. You should contact the nearest …office of the Colorado Department of Labor to know for certain. You can probably google "Colorado Department of Labor" and send them an email to ask. If you can collect unemployment you'll have to contact that office anyway, to get the paperwork.
I got married in the middle of receiving unemployment. I did not have to claim any of his wages. I drew it in IL Another answer: Where unemployment issues (benefits …or otherwise) have nothing to do with whether a claimant is or is not (or does or does not get) married, the question seems moot and without validity and therefore not reportable. If a state's employment office wants to know of the household's total income, that might be a different matter, but, again, it's up to individual states and their own requirements.
It may depend on the nature of the disability. Unemployment requires the ability, among other things, to work and by definition, a disabled person might not be able to perform… that function.
no..but you can receive social security.....welfare,or any other type of city help they have to offer...but you cannot receive unemployment while collecting retirement funds..…
You can receive disability while on maternity leave under a few scenarios. If you live in a state with state short term disability your maternity leave will be a cover…ed benefit. Those states are CA, HI, NJ, NY, and RI. If you bought an individual short term disability policy BEFORE getting pregnant, your maternity leave will be covered.
Yes. It has been found, however, that for some reason some states (Virginia, for example ) reduce the amount of your unemployment compensation by the amount of your SS, which …they should not because they are 2 separate and distinct programs that have no bearing on the purpose of each other. You should check with your own state for its handling of the matter.
In the US in most locations yes you can. Though it depends on your exact circumstance. You cannot draw FOR maternity leave. This link in the Related Link below will go throu…gh all the instances where you can and why as well as when you can't and why for most states. Unemployment insurance is intended for people who lose their jobs. Many employers will hold jobs open during maternity leave - meaning you probably will be denied. If your employer does not hold your job open, then you would have a legitimate claim. Short term disability insurance is intended to replace your income during maternity leave, not unemployment insurance.
yes, but you need to get it modified see links below
To qualify for unemployment compensation you have to have lost your job through no fault of your own, or quit with justifiable reasons. You also have to be ready, willing, and… able to go to work immediately in a full time job which you are required to be seeking. Maternity leave under those conditions does not seem to apply.
Yes, but to have a payable claim you must meet the requirements in the Related Link below.
Yes, but it is possible that Texas MAY deduct from your unemployment benefits that portion of your 401k that was contributed by the employer. Check the Related Link below and …the Texas 'office to determine their criteria.
You can receive unemployment while attending college if you are eligible for unemployment. You will only receive unemployment for about 6 months, regardless of how much yo…u worked.
In New York
Yes. The specifics can be found in the Related Link below, under "What if I work Part time?"
You really should not cheat the system like this and to have a dual income based on self employment and unemployment is illegal. Unemployment insurance is a program that provi…des workers who lost their jobs with a weekly income during times of unemployment. The program is run and funded by both state and federal taxes paid by employers. So if you are working then the purpose of the unemployment benefits have been satisfied and you need to report your change in status and should no longer be receiving benefits from the state and your former employer.
