Q) I have been retired for nine years from a full time job. Just started working parttime for the last 4 months The company closes for 5 weeks at Christmas. Am I able to get unemployment pay.
A) It is unlikely that you will be eligible for unemployment benefits in this situation. In order to be eligible for unemployment benefits, you must be able to show that you are able and available to work. If you are retired, you are not considered to be able and available to work. Additionally, if you have been retired for nine years, it is likely that you have other sources of income, such as a pension or Social Security benefits. These sources of income would disqualify you from receiving unemployment benefits.
However, there may be some exceptions to this rule. For example, if you are retired and you are forced to return to work due to financial hardship, you may be eligible for unemployment benefits. Additionally, if you are retired and you are laid off from your job, you may be eligible for unemployment benefits.
If you are unsure whether or not you are eligible for unemployment benefits, you should contact your state’s unemployment office. They will be able to provide you with more information about your specific situation.
