It is possible that you could. 401k's have what's called a vesting  schedule. All that means is you have to wait a certain amount of  time to actually own the employer's contribution. Some matches are  yours from day one. Most plans aren't like that though, so I would  read through the info on...

In most, if not all, states you would not qualify because you are in total control of your work environment (as opposed to a worker under control of his job). The company not making any money does not meet the criteria of unemployment.
Yes. If there was a perfect equilibrium where the exact amount of able, willing, qualified and available workers looking for the employment with an equal number of employers offering jobs that the worker qualifies for and pays wages acceptable to the worker. The worker demands enough wages to...

Answer: You file for unemployment from the "liable state" which collects the unemployment insurance from the employer you worked for. In this case, the "liable state" is New York. If you work 18 months only in New York, but live outside the state, you MUST file with New York. If you worked in 2 or...
No. Because the only people qualified to receive the benefits are the employees the owner hires. The owner is not eligible for unemployment.
Generally, no. And you will, in most cases, have to wait for at least 1 week, as the state has to investigate whether you are entitled to the benefits.
Yes. The longer you wait after losing your job, the less benefits you'll receive because they will not let the base period go back retroactively. You will also find out, when you file, how much you will get and what you need to qualify. Sign up, soon.
If you have come out of retirement, started working again, lost your job and met all the requirements other unemployed workers have to meet, then yes you can.
You may have been overpaid benefits without it being fraudulent. If it was done innocently it is a matter of paying it back. If it was deliberate (i.e. false statement of facts, omission of information, etc) to conceal ineligibility, then fraud laws come into play.
The process doesn't start until you file for unemployment. Once filed, most states have a minimum of one week before paying compensation. Each state has its own protocol, as it has to verify the facts given by both the employee and the employer, so you would need to check with your own state.
Each state has its own formulae for taxing employers for unemployment benefits that will eventually be paid out to unemployed workers. It generally has to do with the employer's total payroll and the rate is dependent on the turnover rate of the employer's work force. The lower rate is for employers...
You will need to check with your own local authorities to see how much you can earn - if anything - while drawing unemployment benefits.
Yes, if you qualify under each program.

Some businesses, because of the nature of their business, are exempt from paying unemployment taxes to the state they do business in. This may be political or difficult because of how the business operates. If they are liable, however, to pay because they are not excluded, the state should be...
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...
It depends on the purpose of the relocation and what state is the "liable state". If it is to only relocate, then most states would say it is the choice of the employee and would disallow. However, in some states, to relocate because a spouse is relocating (i.e. military, job change, etc.), the...
It's based on earnings and time. To be eligible, you had to work in the first 4 of the last 5 complete calendar quarters. If so, then you had to earn at least $750 in one of the 4 quarters. If you are O.K. so far, then the total wages you earned has to be 1 1/2 times the highest quarter. See the...
Yes. If you qualify for unemployment benefits in your state, you can also collect Social Security benefits as they are 2 separate and distinct programs that do not interfere with each other.
According to page 8 in the Related Link below, you not only can collect Social Security AND unemployment, but your unemployment benefits are not reduced because of your SS benefits.
Because of the complexity in determining Michigan's worker eligibility and the several ways to calculate it, refer to the Related Link below. As for the SS part, it does not reduce your unemployment benefits at all.
The answer to this depends on what state is involved, why there has to be any "pay back" (i.e., misrepresentation or ?) in the first place, etc. And as to the taxes not taken out, whether there is a tax liability depends on other tax issues such as deductions, dependents, etc. Check with a tax...
Yes. Check item #45 under "Unemployment Services" > "General Unemployment Insurance questions" in the Related Link below.
Yes, as long as you qualify for each of them individually. See the Related Link below.
Yes. But there are conditions that must be met. See the Related Link below under "Benefit Eligibility" > "Voluntary Quit" > "Spouse following spouse"
This would depend on the state you work in. If it's considered quitting for benefit of the employee, and not job related, some states would say you were not qualified.
This depends on the state you work in. Generally not, because some states consider the off school season as not unemployed. You need to check with your own state for criteria.
Regrettably, no. And such tricks, along with large hour reductions, are becoming pretty routine. Your best course of action is to have a private conversation with your boss in which you try to convince him that a "lay off" would be in everyone's best interest.

It can be. Some states allow a change in conditions or contract from when a person was hired to be grounds enough to quallify for unemployment. The same goes for reduction in pay, etc. Check with your state's employment security office for clarification.
There are ways that your new employer may find out about your previous employment and most companies state clearly that any falsification on resumes or applications will result in your immediate termination once discovered. Tread carefully!
If you are fired for cause (i.e. drugs, harassment, illegal activity, etc.), then no. However, there are times when people are fired when it's no fault of their own and they get entitlement.
Yes if it is your job.Yes no matter what.
The maximum amounts not only are determined by the individual states, but it also depends on the qualifying workers history, wages earned, number of dependents (in some cases), etc.
Some employers are exempt or under certain conditions are exempt from having to pay employment taxes. See the Related Link below under "How do I know I have to pay unemployment tax" to see the conditions/type of work that is exempt. If your employer does not fall in these categories, you should...

With Federal extensions, the total period is extended. See the Related Link below...

Can I collect unemployment benefits if I were laid off by my spouse who's a business is a sole proprietorship and files form 1040 schedule C?
No, for 2 reasons; first, you quit for personal reasons not caused by your job, and second, among the requirements to receive unemployment benefits you have to be available, ready, willing, and able to begin work immediately in a job you are supposed to be seeking.
You would be disqualified from collecting unemployment if you voluntarily quit without good cause related to the employment.
When more people are engaged in some activity than the number of person required for that , this is called disguised unemployment .   For example : An agricultural field require 4 labourers but people engaged in this activity is 6 then this unemployment for 2 labours is called disguised...
Apparently, from what I have read, most employers deny an employee unemployment benefits if they were fired. I was just terminated from my job after 11 years and I have been told that even though other employees were not fired for this same reason, I cannot collect unemployment. Good Luck. Bad...

I'm not an attorney, but generally any benefit payments from retirement/unemployment/social security/disability cannot be garnished.however, creditors will try to bank levy you in this situation.the trick is don't deposit any money where your benefits go, other than the benefits.A bank levy can be a...
In the case of the United States, yes it does. It also contributes to the crisis by allowing the loss of capital, and if the government does not do anything about that, it ultimately could contribute to the downfall of the United States as a worldwide capital power. This should serve as an example...
Probably not.   Another answer:   Only the "liable state" (the one where your employer pays its unemployment taxes to) is the one you receive your unemployment compensation from.
Yes, although I don't recommend it.   Another answer:   Two things work against it. First, if you just voluntarily quit without good reasons involving the job (generally), then you are ineligible based on purpose of quitting. Second, to qualify for unemployment benefits, you have to be...
Because there is no specific universal guideline determining approval of unemployment compensation you need to contact your own state's unemployment office for clarification of their rules/laws. Some allow company's policies determine if an employee was justifiably discharged. Other are very lenient...
