I’m 74 years old. Am I eligible for unemployment?

Q) I’m wondering if I can collect unemployment. Here’s my situation: I’m 74 years old and worked as an adjunct professor at Indian River State College for six years. I was not given classes to teach last term because I “failed to fill out a form.” This was a form I’d never filled out before, so I’m assuming they wanted to drop me. Here’s the problem: IRSC does not take social security payments out of anyone’s salary; instead, they take money out and put it in a TIAA account. I have access to that money now that I no longer work for IRSC; however, if I use it to pay rent or my car note, I have to pay hefty taxes on it right there and then. So am I eligible to college unemployment? I’m engaged in a job search of course.

A) The rules governing unemployment insurance benefits vary by state. However, to date no state places an age limit on receiving unemployment benefits benefits. A 74-year-old worker should be able to collect unemployment insurance benefits as long as he/she meets their state’s requirements. Your best bet is to apply for you unemployment benefits.
