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.

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 thro…ugh 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.
Maternity leave is permission by your employer to not attend work but still be paid because you are pregnant or looking after a child. Obviously if you are unemployed, you …do not have a job, therefore the question of whether you can get leave from it is irrelevant.
In certain circumstances, you may be able to work limited $hours while on unemployment. If your unemployment counselor does not inform you of this option, be sure to ask the q…uestion. yes...they deduct the amount you earned from your unemployment check..
Each state has its own criteria for determining eligibility regarding things like medical leave. Generally, you have to be able (among other things) to go to work, which you m…ight not be. If your situation is work related, you might qualify for Workers Comp.

Unemployment is set aside for workers who lose their jobs due to economic reasons. Maternity leave is a health related issue. The best way to cover your maternity leave is t…o purchase short term disability insurance before getting pregnant. Your maternity leave will be a covered benefit.
Yes, in most cases, especially if it is an approved course/institution. Bear in mind, you still have to initially qualify for benefits with a work history, etc. and need to co…mply with the requirements of seeking full time employment, etc., which is generally hard to do if going to school full time and during the day.
Yes, altho the amount of UIB might put you over the Medicaid income limit.
That portion of your pension that you had contributed to is not deducted from your unemployment compensation. That which is contributed by the employer is.
Yes. The specifics can be found in the Related Link below, under "What if I work Part time?"
Yes. However, 3 states will offset your unemployment benefits by 50% of the amount of your Social Security payments (Illinois, Utah, and Virginia).
You can be brought up on charges of fraud You are allowed to work in most, if not all, of the states as long as you report it and understand the earnings will be deducted fro…m the benefits by a formula (each state has their own protocols in this regard). This is normally called 'partial unemployment benefits' meant to subsidize substandard earnings. The states want you to work, even if it is part time or temporary, until you can work full time. You still have to search, etc. for that full time job.
No. Your question implies you did not lose your job through no fault of your own, but that you would be returning to your job.
