== == 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.

Yes, in the state of Ohio, people can collect both unemployment insurance benefits and a pension at the same time. People are required, however, to report their pension benefits.

Yes, it is possible, but each state determines how it's handled. Usually the unemployment benefits are offset by pension benefits on a week by week basis. Contact your states' employment security office for clarification.

Generally you can collect both a pension and unemployment benefits, but the unemployment is usually offset by the equivalent weekly pension benefits. Each state has its own criteria regarding whether or not pensions are allowable along with unemployment, and those that do, specify only that portion of the pension the worker contributed to is not considered in the formula for offset. You also must comply with the other rules, such as ready, able, willing, and actively searching for full time employment, etc. Check with your own state for its criteria.

I worked for 30 years and retired at 60 - started collecting my pension but went back to work in another job for 3 months and then got laid off. Am I able to collect unemployment and does it comefrom the 30 year job or the 3 month job.

Yes, you can collect California unemployment benefits when you have a pension. However, according to the Pension or Retirement; A. Pension Law - Section 1255.3 (a), found in the Related Link below, the benefit shall be reduced, but not below 0, by an amount of the pension attributable to the benefits in that week. This is correct but we need to know how this will impact your previous employers pension and not the base employer in which the UI is awarded. You find out that you are eligible to draw pension you did not contribute employer X you worked 15 years back. Will this impact or deducted from your current UI benefits per 1255.3?

It depends on what your own state says in the matter. Some say it's OK, some say it depends on the contribution by yourself or the company. and others will offset unemployment benefits by the pension or portion thereof.

You can collect unemployment benefits if you have been receiving a severance as well. You can only collect benefits for a certain period of time.

If you qualified, you can collect unemployment from Texas, the "liable state", but not from the state you move to.

Some states allow "double-dipping" and others do not. It all depends on the unemployment laws of your particular state, and how they classify "pension".

If you qualify for unemployment benefits from Massachusetts, then you can continue to collect from them if you follow their instructions for your move out of state.

If you have only been threatened with terminated, you cannot collect unemployment. If you have been fired, you can apply for unemployment benefits and they will determine if you are eligible for benefits.

Yes. Each state sets its own requirements and some will offset unemployment benefits by Social Security or pensions. You need to check with your own state's employment security office for clarification.

You can only collect unemployment benefits from the "liable state", where the employer paid unemployment taxes, so Missouri would not pay you benefits, as you described it.

There is no prohibition in any state to marrying anyone who has or will collect state Unemployment Insurance benefits.

Generally, unemployment benefits are paid by the state in which you worked. If you live in Connecticut and work in New York you most likely collect unemployment benefits from the state of New York.

Religious nonprofits have the option to not pay unemployment to the state. If they choose not to pay unemployment then the employee cannot collect unemployment. If they do pay unemployment costs to the state then the employee can collect unemployment benefits. Nonreligious organizations do have to pay unemployment, but they can pay the state one of two ways. As a state tax rated employer (same as a for profit company) or as a direct reimbursurer. In this case the employee is able to collect unemployment benefits. Referenced from www.chooseust.com

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.

US Social Security benefits would have no effect on your ability to collect NY State unemployment benefits. They are two entirely separate programs and one does not preclude the other.

User Avatar

It depends on the state, but you may be able to collect partial benefits.
