Can you collect unemployment if you move while claiming benefits?

Interstate Unemployment ClaimsIf you move out-of-state while claiming benefits, you should immediately telephone or report to a local unemployment office in your new state. They will help you claim benefits on an interstate basis.

Here are opinions from other Wiki s Contributors:

  • Yes, at least in Oregon and New Jersey. Go to your nearest unemployment office and inquire.
  • If you got laid off in Alaska, you need to file a claim in Alaska (you can do this online or over the phone in most states). The state of Alaska will pay you in accordance with their regulations. You need to let them know that you have relocated to another state to look for work.
  • You can collect interstate claims in both Oregon and New Jersey. Go to the unemployment office and ask about it.
  • YES, but if you do start a new job, ANYWHERE, you have to notify the state office that you are working and the exact date you started working again and where you are working. If you don't notify them and continue to accept payment, you are committing a felony fraud.

Can a school bus driver get unemployment benefit in Minnesota?

Sorry to say, but in Minnesota as a school bus driver you can not claim unemployment like every other seasonal job. School bus drivers are lumped in with teachers even though most of the time they aren't given the option to spread their pay over 12 months. This means that many have zero income for a few months a year.

Where can you get teacher's unemployment insurance?

If you are looking for actual unemployment insurance (in case you're fired or laid off), then your employer is responsible for this. Your employer must pay into the state unemployment fund. If, your employer is a non-profit organization such as a religious school, etc., then the employer would probably not pay into the unemployment fund, so there is no unemployment insurance available for employees of this type of organization.

It is also important to mention that, depending on the state, substitute teachers who work only September through June may be eligible for unemployment benefits during the summer. Check with your local unemployment office for more information. In most cases, teachers are eligible for the same benefits as any other worker if the benefits are available.

From what I researched, substitute teacher's in California cannot receive unemployment benefits when they have "reasonable assurance" to work the following school year. However in the Los Angeles School District says it different. They have 2 ways of doing it. Please check out their website in the Related Link below, or go to the second Related Link below and on the left hand side, click substitute. Their web page says "When you call to start your claim, it is imperative that you tell the EDD representative that you are a 'Year Round' Substitute Teacher." The second solution: Once on the web page, download the substitute handbook. This handbooks says "When you call to start your claim, it is imperative that you tell the EDD representative that as as Substitute Teacher you do not have "reasonable assurance" to return to work, and they should refer to the EDD's procedures for the year 2005-2006, Unemployment Insurance Project Notice (UIPN #05-038). This will clarify your status as a Substitute Teacher who is eligible for unemployment benefits. This will eliminate the need for a follow-up phone interview. If the representative is not familiar with these new EDD procedures and inform you you are scheduled for a phone interview, ask to speak to a supervisor.

If you quit your job and move to another state can you collect unemployment until you find a job?

Yes, an individual is eligible to receive unemployment (if he or she meets the criteria to qualify for unemployment) from a previous job while living in another state. However, unless you quit your job for good cause, quitting a job is a disqualifying factor when applying for unemployment.

2009- taken from the Related Link below -Scrivener answered the same question:

Workers who are qualified for unemployment insurance benefits and move to another state are still qualified to collect benefits even after they move. This is because every state participates in the federal interstate Benefit Payment Plan. BUT you must follow the proper procedures to qualify for benefits and receive payments in a timely manner.

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 state's 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.

Well, 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.

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.

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 your state.

I 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.

Can an independent contractor collect unemployment?

Check with the laws of your particular state. If, as an independently employed person, he did not contribute to the state's unemployment insurance pool he may not qualify. Often,one of the reason many employers deliberately use independent contractors is so the employer doesn't have to pay the state payroll/unemployment taxes. Working as such probably doesn't qualify you for the benefits.

First, determine if you are, in fact, an independent contractor. By definition, you should be able to control your own working conditions, hours, method of performing the job, be under contract or verbal agreement with the employer as to the above, etc. Many employers misclassify their employees to avoid approximately 30% of labor expenses (employment security taxes, Social Security contributions, health benefits, income taxes, etc.). If the employer is guilty of this they are violating IRS laws, state laws, etc. See the Related Link below for more details. Contact your employment security office or the IRS if you suspect you are not considered "an employee", by your boss, after checking out the definition. At this time the IRS and 37 states are investigating this abuse.

Where can you find dental care if you are unemployed and do not qualify for Medicaid?

Contact your state's health department

There are various assistance programs that vary from state to state, so you may want to contact your state dental society to see if there are programs in your area.

Another possible source of lower-cost dental care is a dental school clinic. Generally, dental costs in school clinics are reduced and may include only partial payment for professional services covering the cost of materials and equipment. Your state dental society can tell you if there is a dental school clinic in your area.

Locate individual state health assistance programs - See the Related Link below

AnswerLook into state assistance. They have coverage for unemployed people, most of the time. If you have the money to pay for the dentist, a lot of dentist will see you if you pay cash. AnswerEvery person has a heart. If you are unemployed and you ain't got a medicard, just have enough humility to go to a dental office and ask the senior dentist if she could treat you for no professional fee. Maybe some will say no....but there will always be one who will accept your plea.

Income Garnishment
Unemployment Benefits

What is the maximum percentage allowed for wage garnishment?

States set their own laws for wage garnishment. Some states do not allow wage garnishment by creditors but will allow it when it pertains to child and/or spousal support, tax arrears and some court ordered restitutions. The maximum allowed is 25% of disposable wages with the first $154.50 being totally exempt. In most states the percentage is lower and can also be modified or increased by the judge issuing the garnishment order. The 25% maximum does not apply to child support.
depends on what state you live in....google state wage garnishments and a list of all the states should pop up and you will be able to pick your state and it should go into detail about wage garnishments about your state..
any amount the court deems adequate
The maximum garnishment is 25% of disposable income with the first $154.50 of weekly wages exempt. Many states establish their own garnishment amounts rather instead of using federal guidelines. If the state of residency's garnishment amount is less than that of the 25% federal that is the percentage used. South Carolina, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Texas do not allow wage garnishment for creditor debt, several other states that allow garnishment set the exempted weekly wage much higher than the federal $154.50 allowance. All garnishment action is subject to appeal and modification if it constitutes an undue hardship upon the garnishee or the garnishee's dependents. These guidelines apply to creditor debt only and not to federal or state income tax garnishments or a garnishment for child support and in some cases,spousal maintenance (alimony).
The court will determine the amount of the garnish. You need to tell the court ALL your financial circumstances.
