Q) My husband was transfer to Orlando, i will have to resign to my job. would i qualify for unemployment benefits?
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.
Can callect unemployment if I change my state
Although the Unemployment Insurance System is run by individual states, all states are members of the Interstate Reciprocal Benefit Payment Plan. If you prefer to apply for benefits in your new state, you have that right. However, the unemployment laws of the former state will still govern your benefit payment calculations. You also need to start looking for work immediately after moving to a new state and report all job inquiries within each weekly filing.
Some states will allow you to move your unemployment benefits without participating in the Interstate Reciprocal Benefit Payment Plan. In these states, you only need to contact state authorities prior to your move. Your former state of residence will then arrange to transfer your benefits to be paid through the new state’s unemployment insurance authority.
