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.

Thanks for the feedback!
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.
Yes. As long as you qualify for each, they are unrelated programs that do not affect each other.
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.
No, you must be able and available to work and since you are in jail, you can't work if a job was offered to you. People do commit fraud by having someone outside file their w…eekly benefit if the state has an automated system, but then generally it catches up with them and now they have a fraud overpayment and other consequences.
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.
Yes, but only if it was job related due to work conditions, harassment, toxic conditions, change in the terms of your employment, spouse relocating, job relocating, etc. all o…f which should be verified by the employment security office in your own state as each state has its own rules and regulations in this matter. There are only a few reasons when you quit and can still collect unemployment benefits. This depends on each state, as to qualifications, but generally its if it were for good, justifiable reasons.
No. When you retire you are no longer willing, able and actively seeking full time employment immediately, all requirements for unemployment compensation.
Most, if not all, states make allowances for income while seeking full time employment, if you had lost a job and was running the home business to make ends meet. Obviously, y…ou had to qualify, originally, with a work history of working for someone else, first. It's called partial unemployment benefits, and could even be full benefits if the income you receive (which MUST be reported each week), is less than the benefits themselves. As each state sets it's own rules, you need to check with your state's employment security office for clarification.
It depends on the state and the nature of the disability. If you are permanently disabled and can't work then you probably can not get unemployment. They will ask you in the… check claiming process if you are able to work. Some states will allow eligibility if you have a disability, but it depends on the disability and whether it prevents you from doing any type of work you would otherwise be capable of doing.
If the suspension was through no fault of your own, then probably yes. Otherwise, it is up to the state unemployment office where you work as to their definition of justifiabl…e reasons a company can do something that causes loss of jobs.
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.
The maximum is $415 per week times 26 weeks, or $10,790 (before any extensions).
Yes, you can collect unemployment. But you still need to look for a job. If you are retire you will receive a reduced amount.
In Business Law
Might be eligible for Workman's Comp: If the surgery was due to working conditions you might be eligible for workman's compensation, but this is not the same as unemployment.… To be eligible for unemployment, you have to be ready, willing, available and ABLE to work, and if you said you could not work, then you are not eligible. If the injury occurred while on the job, you probably are eligible for Workers Comp. Whether not being able to work, otherwise, the claim would depend on the rules of your state's employment security office. Might be eligible to collect unemployment: I'm not certain that's entirely true. If he/she is laid up in bed, then in all likelyhood they would not qualify. It all depends on the nature of the injury/recovery. If, however, they were able to perform modified duty such as sitting in a chair doing data entry, then they would be willing to work. If their specific job does not provide for that type of light duty or there are no available positions to fill, he/she may be entitled to unemployment. i.e. Willing to work, able to work, no work available. Provided they are still employed by the same company.
Receiving unemployment benefits require that you are able, willing, and actively seeking full time employment which, if you were retiring, violates those requirements. Therefo…re the benefits would cease.
