I will laid off for 3 months. Can I collect unemployment for the few months I’m off?

Q) I retired from the government and went back to work been working for 15 months now. I will laid off for 3 months and back to work after that. Can I collect unemployment for the few months I’m off?

A) According to the Department of Labor, you need to meet two criteria to qualify for unemployment:

You are unemployed through no fault of your own. Which means you lost your job due to no fault of your own – such as being laid off. If you quit your job or if you got fired for gross misconduct, you’re not eligible for unemployment benefits.

You must also meet your state’s requirements for time worked or wages earned: Every state has different rules. Some states requires that you must have worked at least two years prior to meet your state’s minimum time and wage requirements. Please call your state local unemployment office visit their website for more details.
