Good luck trying to squeeze any money out of Louisiana...even if you earned it legitimately, worked the qualifying periods and your employer paid everything for UI benefits. Louisiana will string you along for about 6-8 weeks telling you to keep filing and each week they will send you a letter stating that "there is an unresolved issue" with your claim. They will not tell you the issue, nor will they disclose what they are waiting on to you on the phone - if you can ever reach a live person that is - they have one phone number and I am convinced - one person that answers this phone line, which you will wait about 2 hours on hold if you have the patience, only to be told exactly nothing. After tellling you first 4 weeks, it will change to 6, then to 8 weeks, if you do not hear anything, you will be told to...call them back at that same number! Eventually you will get a letter (after filing every week & hoping you get benefits until you get another job at the new duty station). basically saying too bad, so sad, but that your spouse moving is just not a good enough reason for you to leave your job. It was not the employers fault that you left, it was yours and tada you are disqualified! Don't expect anything from Louisiana...they fight hard and write it 'just so' in their books so as to keep all the money that should be rightfully yours.

Can a military spouse collect unemployment benefits if they are forced to relocate outside the US?

Most states have different policies pertaining to spouses of military members and their ability to collect unemployment. Many states, especially if you are moving outside the U.S. will provide military spouses with unemployment benefits because it is through no fault of their own that they have to leave with their spouse. For more information go to the state's website that you are leaving from, or just google whatever state employment security commission There you will find all the information you need pertaining to military spouses. You can collect unemployment benefits if your employment is ended through no fault of your own, for instance for medical reasons or to move with a spouse who is relocated. The question is to whether benefits can be collected while living outside the United States.

Can a military spouse collect unemployment benefits from Florida if family has to relocate to another state?

Hello To my knowledge it depends what you declare as your home of residence, many states such as California require that you declare CA as your home of residence 10 days after arrival. Being military may wave that though, because you move around so much declaring and filing taxes through Florida may be ok for you to continue to cash in on their unemployment.

Can a person draw unemployment to relocate?

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 state may allow a partial unemployment because it was beyond the control of the worker. You need to check with your own state for it's criteria and the reason you are relocating.

If you were laid off in Florida can you still collect unemployment benefits if you move to Illinois?

The Unemployment Compensation provisions have undergone many changes through the years; and, the procedures for qualifying for eligibility have been revised as well, varying in one manner or another from state to state. The best resource you have is the local unemployment office for the state in which you now reside. If it is different from that where you were laid-off, you are still considered unemployed until you attain employment status; and, if you expect to be considered eligible for benefits, you need to meet their criteria, the first part of which is registration. It is not customarily a mandatory provision for receiving unemployment benefits that you refrain from changing your residence to anywhere other than out-of-country or prison, in which case you would no longer qualify.Interstate Unemployment BenefitsYes, you can continue to collect benefits from the state in which you originally filed your claim. Unemployment benefits are not public assistance, you worked for it, it is your money.Your new state of residency does not pay the benefits, they will come from the state in which you were eligible, but you will still need to follow the requirements for eligibility.Contact the office of the state agency that handles unemployment benefits in the state where you relocate as soon as possible to avoid a delay in receiving your benefits.
