You must be approved in the state you were laid off in and the benefits will continue to be paid from that same state.

Yes, it may differ state to state so I would check your states department of economical services, unemployment compensation. You need to file with the state you worked in. For example, if you lived and worked in Arizona, and then moved to Missouri, you would need to file with Arizona to send your payments to Missouri. The only snag you may hit is the requirement of job hunting. They cannot make you go to their labor department, so that may cause a denial, but I would reapply if that happens, you can always just fax or mail in the info from your job searches.

AnswerWell, it depends on if you were fired or if you left voluntary, I left NY to come to GA in 1994, and I left under some pretty stressful circumstances, but because I left my jobs voluntarily I did not get unemployment from NY, but when I was fired in 2005 by a major wholesale company in CA, I was able to get the unemployment when I moved to GA, I had to fight for it, but I got it!!!! So whatever state you left, make sure you check on-line or by calling the labor dept to find out if you are able to get your unemployment. All I can say is good luck to you, it took me approximately 6 months to finally get a check. Another answer:Yes you can, as long as you qualified in the state you worked in and cleared with them that you were moving and complied with their conditions. Answer:The US Dept. of Labor says that you must be unemployed Through no fault of your own and that is determined by particular State laws. Depending on that state law, to quit to move somewhere else is not "through no fault of your own". Some states do allow unemployment benefits if you quit for non-job related reasons (i.e. spouse relocation, military, domestic violence issues, etc.) The Related Link below gives many facts about unemployment laws and rules. Mainly, check with your own State's unemployment office for clarification in you. state. AnswerI don't know about your state. But here in NC if you quit your job, your are not eligible for any unemployment. You are eligible only if you are fired or laid off. Opinion:First of all that wouldn't really be honest and second i think it would depend on the state
