What would you like to do?
If you are retired can you collect unemployment?
No ... retirement is much the same as a "voluntary quit". Usually in retirement one draws a pension or retirement income. Besides, in order to collect UI, one also has to actively seek employment at at least 3 places each week ... what is the sense then of being retired? This statement is not correct, military members are entitled to receive unemployment benefits once discharged, if they are in the coast guard like i am you are entitled to federal unemployment which is at a higher rate. If you want to find out more about your benefits contacts your local employment commission or visit your states website. As far as the retired members i am not sure but will find out and post it.

"Retirement" is either voluntary(personal decision) or forced(company decision). If you have been "retired" by a company basedon age factors set by that company, it would be p…ossible to collectunemployment as it constitutes firing. If you voluntarily left thejob and called it retirement, then no, you can't. Contact yourlocal state employment office and inquire. In most states, it isn'ta function of the company to make you retire. My mother is stillworking...at 76... and is covered by the unemployment laws eventhough she is "retirement age". If you retired for good, no. You have to be available, ready,willing, able, and actively seeking full time employment in most ifnot all states. Also it would depend on whether you were eveneligible in the first place.
Yes, you can collect unemployment. But you still need to look for a job. If you are retire you will receive a reduced amount.
No you can not. You could then collect Social Security benefits. And unemployment does not last forever. In most states, it isn't a function of the company to make you retire.… If you are collecting retirement you can still collect unemployment. Another answer: To qualify for unemployment in most states, you have to be available, ready, willing, and able to start full time work immediately and searching for work. You also have to report any income you are receiving (which would include you retirement income). If you met all these requirements and the state approved it, you could get unemployment.
From what I've researched 1) it depends on the state, 2) for states that accept your military retirement: If your retirement from the military is the reason you are seeking un…employment then NO. If you are retired from the military and collecting a retirement check but then go to work at another job, get laid off due to no fault of your own, and your base period is based solely on the new job then YES your military retirement has no bearing on your unemployment and you will receive unemployment.
It depends which type of work u r doing. but some common type of benefit, u can have. I m giving u some..... (1) Experience & Knowledge._most important. (2) Knowing about …related work & time management. (3) Some type of income & other tax exemption. (4) Pension fund....etc. Another answer: If you are coming out of retirement, you are the same as any other worker. If you qualify by working 5 quarters, have the sufficient amount of wages and left the job through no fault of your own, then at that time you could be eligible for unemployment compensation.
Retirement means that you have chosen not to work, normally because you have reached retirement age (usually 65) or for any other reason. Unemployment means that you do still …want to work but you have not been successful in finding work. So it has to be one or the other. Either you are trying to get a job, or you aren't. Not both.
I am sure it is different in each state. i believe in Nj you can as long as you had a new job for a certain amount of time and that time is not from when you being pad by the …school district.
No. Stated in the context you present, retirement means not working for wages again and that violates the condition for receiving unemployment benefits, among other requireme…nts.
The issue is not whether you are eligible for retirement, but whether you're eligible in your state for unemployment. After checking off all the reasons for the latter's eligi…bility you have to then consider the retirement aspect. You cannot receive unemployment if you just retire with no intention of going back to work. They are contradictory issues.
Good question. If you have exhausted your unemployment benefits and have seriously been looking for work during your benefit period, it sounds reasonable to collect some form …of retirement. If you mean Social Security, however, if you meet the requirements for SS, then you can collect it at any time, while working, while unemployed or when no longer looking for work.
If you mean you are collecting Social Security benefits (as the retirement benefits), then yes you can. Only 4 states offset the unemployment benefits by a portion of your SS …benefits (Illinois, Louisiana, Utah, and Virginia). Other retirements need to be discussed with your state's employment security office because some are allowed, some modify the benefits, and some are not allowed.
In State Laws
You cannot collect absolute retirement (meaning not returning to work) and unemployment benefits because the latter requires you to, among many things, continuously seek full …time employment.
In State Laws
This depends entirely on the state you work in. Some states allow both, others offset the unemployment benefits by the portion the employer paid into the pension, etc. This de…pends on several factors: 1) If you are truly "retiring", then no, because you have to seek full time employment 2) The type of retirement (Social Security always is allowed, but Illinois, Louisiana, Utah, and Virginia offsets your unemployment by some factor of the Social Security benefit), and 3) The state involved, as they all have different regulations concerning other income beside your benefit.
This answer depends on a few things. First, it depends on what state you are claiming benefits in (not which one you are living in or received the pension/retirement from). Ge…nerally speaking, if you paid into the retirement, then they do not count it against you. If the retirement was 100% employer paid, then they do deduct some or all of your unemployment based on the amount you receive monthly. The only way the unemployment office knows if you receive a pension/retirement is if YOU tell them. They have no other way of finding out and most people are honest and they are the ones that end up getting screwed!
Yes but it is offset by your retirement pay. After 20 years I only get 21 dollars a week in unemployment.
Absolutely. It is called your "Retirement Pension". You cannot collect "unemployment insurance" monies if you are retired.
