You will find them under the Texas Labor Code, Subtitle A, Chapter 201 in the Related Link below.
Yes, if you meet eligibility requirements for both programs. Texas repealed the Social Security offset regulations that reduced unemployment compensation for people who were… claiming both benefits. Both Social Security and the State of Texas allow workers to collect unemployment and Social Security at the same time without applying a penalty to either check.
It takes around 3 weeks. During heavy filing periods maybe 4 weeks but it took me 3 weeks. The unemployment office takes 14 days from the date they mailed the letter to the em…ployer to recieve an answer. Then around an additional week to approve. You should recieve payment, if you are approved, around three days after you are approved.
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.
There is no state income tax in Texas, so there is no state tax to worry about. Benefits earned in 2008 are fully taxable for federal purposes. The first $2400 of benefits… per person is exempt from federal taxes in 2009. If a couple files a joint return, the exemption for each person is figured separately.
12 months...you have one year from the initial file date to continue collecting unemployment benefits, provided you have worked long enough prior to your claim to have e…nough money vested to last that long. Hope this helps.
About 2 weeks from the date you filed unemployment.
Not likely because you have to be willing, able, available, and seeking full time employment, which being a full time student would be difficult. Actually YES, you can and as …long as you have been laid off (had to have previous work) and are registered full time, 12 or more credits you can claim unemployment and NOT have to seek a job. You will have to have school officials sign off documention every so many weeks proving youre enrolled and actively attending.
I took a drug and my ex sent paperwork to my job showing I was positive on a court paper, I since been doing random UA tests and they are clean and my job did one too and I ca…me out clean, but they still fired me, I'm ordered throught the courts to stay clean and I have been, can I collect unemployment her in colorado?
I'm so sorry for your loss. Been there. Generally, you can't receive benefits since churches are not required by law to pay into unemployment insurance for their employees. So…me churches do, so it's worth asking. Your only other recourse is to prove your church was a hostile workplace. This process could turn ugly, however, if you have been fired from a church position, the situation is already most likely pretty ugly. See your local unemployment office or website for information on starting this process. In lieu of benefits, some churches will offer severance packages. Pastors would be wise to seek out help from local denominational leaders to negotiate for them and increase their chances of receiving benefits. Given the state of the economy, it is completely fair to ask for six months benefits, but most churches settle for three or less. Don't allow a crushed self-esteem to keep you from applying for other ministry jobs right away. Ask other ministers' advice on how to explain your departure to future employers. Also, seek at least a part-time job while you wait. You will most likely be grossly over-qualified for the job, but at least you'll have the peace of mind of having an income, and you can quit as soon as God leads you to your new ministry opportunity.
Yes, as long as you were not fired because of violation of major policies, gross negligence in your job, or a demonstrated inability to do your job. You will be asked questio…ns when you apply for unemployment that help TWC determine if you meet the eligibility requirements. Example: woman was fired by a boss who was embezzling and thought the employee had discovered it. The TWC investigator did her job, uncovered the discrepancies in the employer's report, and awarded benefits to the employee. Example: an RN was fired after missing meetings and letting her license lapse, making her unable to do her job and causing an undue burden on her fellow RN's. She is not eligible for benefits.
In State Laws
The average state benefit is for 26 weeks (payable within a 52 week period). Federal extensions increase the time received, but it depends on the state and the unemployment ra…te of the state compared to the national average. 26 weeks per claim. One claim per year. If you ever had your weekly dollar amount reduced for any reason, you may collect longer than 26 weeks to make up the difference. See this Related Link for details for Connecticut, for example
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.
It depends on the circumstances and the laws in your state covering same.
In State Laws
Unemployment Comp if I quit my jobYou do need to check with your state's Dept of Labor and find out their rules. However, an individual may sometimes receive unemployment if t…hey quit their job for good reasons. In Michigan, it may be allowed if the employee quit for "good reasons directly attributable to the employer." In other words, the employer made it difficult or impossible for you to continue working there. For example, they want to transfer you to a different plant and are not giving you any other options, but the plant is 200 miles a way. That is an unreasonable commute - especially if you own your home in the area you are currently working in. You would have to sell your home and uproot your family. Michigan also allows a person to re-qualify once you have earned a stated amount of money. At that point, you would become eligible for benefits. You should also remember that most if not all states will allow you to protest if you are not awarded benefits, which could be a long process, but definitely worth the time if you can't find another job. Check with the Department of Labor in your state; generally, a person must be terminated or laid off by the employer to collect unemployment compensation.
Looks like right now you can get 26 weeks of unemployment assuming you have enough benefits to collect the full 26 weeks. And if you are eligible you can qualify for an additi…onal 33 weeks of emergency unemployment benefits.
