Is it true that in the calculation of nation's unemployment rate un-employees who stopped receiving unemployment benefits are not counted?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Yes, that is correct. In the calculation of a nation's unemployment rate, individuals who have stopped receiving unemployment benefits are still considered unemployed if they are actively seeking work. They would be classified as part of the labor force and counted in the unemployment rate.

No. The only thing you might be able to collect is 'Disability Insurance'. Unemployment Insurance comes into play only when a person has been laid off from active employment - people are not laid off for medical illnesses.

Can you collect New York State unemployment benefits if you get laid off because you are pregnant?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Yes you can otherwise it would be discrimination. Even if your employer laid you off because you were pregnant it is discrimination as well.

Apparently you can, especially if you did not lose your job because you QUIT due to the pregnancy. Refer to the item "Does pregnancy affect my eligibility?" in the Related Link below. However, like other claimants, you have to be ready, willing and able to seek employment.(??)

How long must you work on a job to receive unemployment benefits in NY?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Besides the monetary requirements, the normal period of employment (total time) must be in at least 2 quarters of the base period (the first 4 of the last 5 complete calendar quarters). If you don't qualify then, there is an Alternate method of determining work period. If you still don't qualify, then the last quarter worked for an employer would be used. However, once a method has been chosen, you cannot go back and re-figure a new method, so be careful and discuss the option with the state.

Can you collect Social Security and unemployment in Washington state?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No. They ask each week, were you ABLE and available for work. If you are unable to work then you are supposed to notify them and they WILL discontinue your benefits until you notify them that you ARE ABLE to work again. Sometimes a Doctor's note is required to get back ON unemployment, depending on the injury or illness. IMO... If ou are dependent on unemploment right now... I would not tell them about any injuries or illness unless it's really, really serious. They will cut you off. This last part, of course, is just my personal opinion. YMMV.

Can you receive unemployment benefits and Social Security benefits at the same time in Illinois?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Yes, but unfortunately, Illinois and Louisiana are the only states that have not changed the law that deducts money from unemployment payments to people who also receive social security

Here's the formula in Illinois -- multiply your monthly social security payment by 12 (months). Divide that amount by 52 (weeks). Divide that amount in half and that's the amount that will be deducted from your weekly unemployment payment. If you have a dependent, usually a spouse, the amount might be a little different. But not by much.

Realize the unemployment benefits are reduced, not the Social Security benefits. Your Social Security benefits will continue at the expected rate.

Example:

$1,200 monthly social security payment x 12 months = $14,400

$14,400 / 52 weeks = $279.92 / 2 = $139.96

eligible for $385 weekly unemployment payment - $139.96 = $245.04 is your weekly unemployment payment

This unfair law can only be repealed by the State Legislature. Illinois AARP has made it a priority. To help or for more information, please contact Ryan Gruenenfelder at Illinois AARPFor more information, see Sources and Related Links and the Related Question Link, below.

What is the statute of Limitation for overpayments of unemployment benefits in New Jersey?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Does NJ Have a statute of limitation for overpayment of uc benefits. I received a notice that they overpayed me in 1994. I have heard nothing from them until now. They state they have a judgement and will garnish my salary. How can they do this 19 1/2 years later without any notice prior to this. I do not have records from back then and cannot prove if I did or didn't receive an over payment.

How do you calculate the New York state unemployment benefits?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

In New Jersey, each week you get 60% of your average weekly pay you had received during the base year (the first 4 of the last 5 completed calendar quarters) up to a maximum of $584 (in 2009) for a maximum of 26 weeks. You're paid one week of benefits for each week you worked in the base year. If you worked less than 26 weeks (the period of initial benefits), then you'd multiply the number of those weeks times the amount figured above and that would be the maximum benefits you would be entitled to. See the related Links below for examples on the computation.
