I thought that is how it worked but have been told by many folks who have moved here f/ other states that they are still drawing unemployment from the state they moved from.

I also have a friend from here in CLT who moved to NY and was still drawing UE from NC.

A relative of mine was working from home down here for a company in NJ and got laid off. She's collecting from NJ.

If you can move anywhere and have a lower cost of living(mortgage, taxes, etc..)why not do it? I've been here two years now. My mortgage went from $2400.00 a month for a tiny house with almost no property, to $800.00 a month for a large house on an acre. Property tax went from $13000.00 to $2000.00 a year. So, I clearly made the right move. We are very happy.

I have a job, but if I had to live anywhere without employment, I'd rather live with lower bills down here, then outrages bills up there.

Even if I lost my current job, I'd still have income to cover my current bills. The same situation up north and I would not be able to cover my bills.
You do realize that there is more to life for people other then how cheaply they can live right? Some people actually want to live around their family, and some people actually want to live where there are more amenities that they enjoy, even if it's costlier.

A lower cost of living generally means a lower standard of living, so you may move somewhere where your mortgage and property taxes are cheaper (since that is what everyone seems to be fixated on these days), but you will see lower salaries for the same level of work, less public transportation, fewer desirable amenities, higher crime, ect.

For us, personally, moving here from Western New York meant a higher COL, but also a higher standard of living. We chose Charlotte (instead of Louisville, Nashville, or Raleigh), because it was near family in Roanoke, within a days drive of WNY, and because of my previous employment in the banking industry. We moved after getting married, my wife had a job secured, and I had one after 2 months of living here. We are able to set down roots, and the pros and cons of the area meet our needs, but may not for everyone who is just looking to escape a high mortgage or property taxes

Actually, this is incorrect. You receive unemployment benefits from whichever state you paid payroll taxes in over the past 18 months. I had this occur for me a while back when I moved to California and received unemployment from California and Louisiana.

I applied with California UE and they interviewed me and needed all the details on my jobs in and out of California and it was set up so that I had a specific amount total I could get from unemployment in California, and there was an amount that was tacked on to increase my total that came from my time worked in Louisiana over the 18 months. The second part was paid for through Louisiana funds. The same would occur in any other state.

If people just move into the state, yes they can apply through NC to qualify for unemployment, but it is the state that they paid into that is left with the burden

This is exactly why me and my fiancee are considering moving. Yes it will be nice to be in a place where the cost of living is absurd, but we picked Charlotte as a good place almost primarily because it is almost Exactly halfway between both of our families. We're tired of being so far away from everyone we love back home.

Right, the State that received the funds is where the insurance will come from but the individual will transfer to the new State.

Ohhhh, I think I misinterpreted your statement from before. I thought when you said the person would be on the NC roll, you meant that they would be on the NC liability.

But now I'm realizing you were saying that they would be counted by NC as being an unemployed person living in NC because they would have to register with NC unemployment. Which would then counter the fears that some other posters had as far as having a "hidden" population of unemployed residing in Charlotte.

I think you are completely right, and apologize for my misunderstanding earlier.

The hyperbole on this thread is pretty amusing. Like companies, cities can either grow or stagnate/decline. Yes, growth brings about challenges and issues...but it also brings about energy, ideas and money. You don't get to be a big airline hub without growth, you don't get new restaurants, shops, cultural venues, and all that. You can certainly take issue with some aspects of the growth - the speculation, plastic subdivisions in the exurbs...but seems as if some want to be the last to move here and then bar the door.

Migration is a natural pattern throughout the history of this country. East to West, the CA Gold Rush, Industrial revolution and the growth of cities, post WW2 migration of African Americans from the South to northern cities, boom in CA, moves to Sunbelt cities in the 80s/90s, etc.
