Default Can you get unemployment if you move from another state

MY wife and I will be moving from Indiana to Ct. in March. She will have to quit her job. Will she be able to collect unemployment benefits? and if so. How much is it in CT.

Not if she quits, as far as I know. She'd have to be laid off or fired for something non-criminal or negligent. I still think you collect from the state the job was based in though. So I guess the answer is no all around.

Not necessarily. I moved from NY to CT with my DH and was able to collect because NY has a following spouse provision. Basically, you have to show you had "good cause" to quit your job. You are correct that she will have to collect from Indiana.

Indiana does have a following spouse provision Can You Collect Unemployment in Indiana if Relocated for a Spouse's Job? | eHow.com

From reading that it seems that they would need to apply through CT not Indiana, as that is the state they are leaving, not coming to. Read the section under "Where to Apply for Benefits"

It seems CT does NOT have a trailing spouse clause for unemployment.

So....???? It's confusing but it seems like CT wont pay you for that.

The OP is leaving Indiana for CT. They could file before the actual move. But, my understanding is even if they file in CT, it is processed via the "home" state that they last worked in (Indiana)

Yes you'd file to the state the employer paid the insurance to; usually last state worked. If I was her...have her talk to her hr administrator...she can find out what temp agency they use (maybe its national) and they can set her up in CT. Maybe she's valuable enough to telecommute? Maybe once she starts talking to managers to prepare for the departure someone will know a job and mention her for it.Not sure what kind of work she does.If she's a good employee maybe they'd be interested in helping her learn a skill like payroll or billing. Hardship or spouse moves usually bring out the best in people.

Yes, you file with Indiana, the state you used to work, not CT. That is if you qualify. Yes, most states allow you to collect even if you move to another state.

I think it's as simply as calling them and changing your address.

I want to thank everyone for their comments. I will be moving to Hartford, as a Pastor. My wife works in the Insurance Risk department Old National Bank(An Indiana and Kentucky Bank). She would have to move, since I will be taking a church there.

Thanks Again

Is she an actuary? Ct is a big insurance state and it's one of the only industries hiring here. Where abouts in ct will you be located? In central ct have her start lookin on the websites for the Hartford, aetna and XL insurance. Depending on the area we have some large financials like ING that have in house risk. Most of the ones I listed have taleo based job search websites. If you sign up it'll alert you when something matches. She should def start before she has an end date. Even if she has to travel for an interview it'll be worth it. If it doesn't pull together she may want to get a paralegal certificate, the big ct firms all have insurance specific paralegals on staff as most do business with the local insurance companies.
