What would you like to do?
If you have two jobs and are fired from one of them can you collect unemployment in New York State?
Yes, you may. If you had qualified, based on the higher paying job and lost that one, then according to the Related Link below, page 9 under "What if I work part time?", if you work less than 4 days and earn less than $405 for the Week, you may be entitled to partial unemployment benefits. They consider your total pay during the base period to arrive at the benefit amount, then re-adjust based on your current income.

YES, provided the unemployment benefits are properly yours. In other words, that you worked and made the proper contributions from your income to the state fund. …Having a state pension is no conflict.
26 weeks of unemployment benefits which can be spaced out over a year (like if you have a temp job for a few weeks and then go back to unemployment). This can be followed by 3…3 weeks of "Emergency unemployment benefits" and that is followed by about 20? weeks of "Extended Benefits" unemployment benefits. Once you get past the initial regular unemployment benefits, you may need to report your work search efforts in their format every month to continue to get benefits. If you are able to collect COBRA with the ARRA benefits, these get impacted as you switch from regular to emergency to extended. There are also career search services and educational grants and exemptions you can get. Google New York State unemployment assistance to get the website / the right area and look at FAQs. Make sure you read the actual regulations because in my experience, the representatives give you wrong info on the phone. Whether you live in NYS or not makes a difference on how long benefits last and whether you can get more than 2 weeks extended benefits. The reference to length of time mentioned above can be found in the Glossary in the Related link below about New York.
You can collect unemployment benefits if you have been receiving aseverance as well. You can only collect benefits for a certainperiod of time.
No. You still have a source of income from the 2nd job. The purpose of UI is to provide a pittance income while you not working and seeking employment. Since you are sti…ll working, you are not eligible for UI.
If I quit a job A then took job B and laid off or fired after one week will I be able to collect unemployment insurance?

If you live in Michigan and you quit one job for a new job and then was let go from the new job after three weeks can you collect unemployment or will you be denied?
You will be denied. You have to work somewhere for a full year to receive unemployment. And quitting a job does not allow you to collect either.
Technincally no, but your employer has to be able to prove the misconduct in order to stop you from collecting. Upon applying for unemployment, you will likely be interviewed …over the phone by the EDD because of the "misconduct". The interview is administered by an administrative law judge who will decide based on your side of the story if you deserve the opportunity to collect UI benefits.
If you abandoned your job, it was a voluntary act that you were responsible for. You could not collect under those circumstance.
The company's going bankrupt should not affect your getting unemployment, The company paid (or should have) unemployment taxes to the state who, in turn, pays the benefits to …claimants. Therefore it is the state you look to for relief.
Technically, if you lost one of your jobs the other one makes you still employed. However, because most states do allow a reduction in pay/hours as justification for receiving… benefits, it stands to reason if you lost the higher paying job and still have the lower one, you might qualify. It depends on your state and whether the pay you still receive exceeds the benefits, etc. Along those same lines, people are allowed to have part time work and collect, as long as they keep searching for full time work. Check with your state's employment security office for your circumstances.
To collect unemployment you have to be actively seeking work and able to do the work. Receiving Social Security Disability implies you may not be able to either, so probably n…ot.
In State Laws

You claim for a period of time (Called the base period) and any job worked in that time is counted, so you file one time only.

Yes, unless you were fired for gross misconduct.
No. However, you may collect welfare and/or food stamps.
