Yes, you can if you are already collecting unemployment. It's called an interstate claim. If you are relocating for personal, non-work related problems then it would be up to the "liable state" you are moving from as to being eligible. Following your spouse is sometimes an allowable, as is domestic abuse, health, etc. If you are going to Florida in order to file for unemployment against the state of Florida, with no work history, then no, you cannot collect unemployment in Florida.

Collecting unemployment in California relocating to Florida due to husbands unemployment can I collect unemployment in Florida?

Unemployment is a federal program which states administer. therefore it does not matter what state you move to you still receive the same money from califrornia. the only difference is that the state you live in now administers your money from California. also, importantly California still does the determination of your claim NOT Florida. but if you're already receiving your checks you've probably already had a determination.

Can you collect unemployment benefits due to relocating to attend graduate school?

Probably not although I am a little confused by what you are asking. You have to have been employed and let go for no fault of your own in order to collect unemployment. Grad school is school, not a job (although I am sure it feels like a job!) and so just because you are relocating to attend graduate school you are not necessarily entitled to it and if you had to quit your job for that reason then that will probably be seen as "your fault"

Teachers in Florida can only collect unemployment if they were let go at the end of the school year. If the teacher will continue to be employed during the next school year then they are considered to still be employed. Teachers in Florida typically continue to receive pay checks during the summer.
