One opinion:Actually you can. I just moved from California to Colorado and EDD interviewed me again, but I still qualify for it. I explained that I could not find work where I was.

Transfers:

Also, I am pretty sure you can transfer the benefits. IE: if you start your claim in California and then move to Texas you will still be able to collect in Texas but not at the same amount as in CA, probably a little less. This is what they told me about 5 years ago when I was on unemployment and was thinking of moving to another state.

YES. my brother moved from CA to MN and collected the maximum CA unemployment there. He also filed after moving to MN.

If you are currently receiving benefits in one state and you move to another, you still receive benefits from the original state. You receive benefits from the state in which you worked for the past 18 months. All you have to do is provide your new address to your "original" state of residence and they will mark you as an interstate payee. You then continue to file your weekly certification as normal. You will receive the exact same amount of benefits, it does not change. You are required to seek employment in the new state you moved to. It's that simple. I know this to be true because I recently moved and just took these steps.

from A GUIDE TO BENEFITS AND EMPLOYMENT SERVICES/ EDD CALIFORNIA

page 17.

"if you move to another state and still want to claim benefits, call EDD

for instructions. Failure to contact the office promptly could result in delay or loss of your benefits"

If you move after starting to get benefits in California, simply continue to follow the rules of the program and send in your biweekly claim forms to the same office as always.

I just moved from California to Massachusetts and was receiving UI benefits in California. I heard that you still can so I changed my address on the form you have to submit to them with the new address change. I have yet to receive a check because they put my claim on hold. They told me I am schedule to a phone interview but that's not until another 2 weeks and it still doesn't determine if I will be approved or not. Be prepared to wait at least 2 months to receive a check if they determine you are eligible.
You may file a claim for unemployment benefits any time you have been separated from employment. However, the laws governing the state where you performed the work will determine eligibility based upon the reason you were separated.

Secondly, you could not collect from the state you move to because that state did not collect unemployment taxes from your former employer (hence, not the "liable state")

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.

The only way you can collect unemployment is if you had qualified for it by a work history in the last 15 months, the right amount of wages, and other requirements set out by your state's employment security department, and the right conditions for how you left your job. Merely moving out of state does not make you eligible for benefits. If you met all the above, you can collect benefits if you move out of state.
