Q) I quite my job to move back to Alabama to be closer to my Mother to help her. Can I collect unemployment?
A) When you resign from your job you may not be eligible for unemployment benefits. In most situations, if you resign voluntarily you are not eligible. However, if you resign for good cause you may be able to collect unemployment benefits. Good cause could include, for example, not being paid, discrimination, unsafe working conditions, a change in your job duties, health and safety risks on the job, or some types of family emergencies.
