I am currently collecting unemployment,found a part time job(15-20 hrs a week) but between the 2 of them, I can't afford to keep my current home(renting). I am considering moving in with my mother who lives on the other side of the state and look for a full time job there if i decide too make the move.
My question is, I would have to quit the part time job I currently hold and I'm afraid that this will look negative to the unemployment office, but it may be the only way that I can continue to live in Connecticut. There are no full time jobs in the area that I am qualified for so It may be forced to do this within the next few months.
Can anybody help me in this matter, I am not finding anything out online?? Thanks if anyone can shed some light on this subject..

Go to the unemployment office and explain them the situation.

You can't be the only one facing this predicament. They probably have heard this before and have something place.

Whatever happens, that's the only way to truly find out.

Good luck!

Unfortunately, any time you quit a job you will create an issue on your account. The benefits will be paused until the issue is resolved. If you quit for lack of income and need to move there will be issues that need addressed................ Could you stay with a friend, did you ask to stay some where else. It seems you stated you have two jobs, have you been reporting your gross income from each job including tips (potential fraud)? They (unemployment office) may get personal to see if you have a hardship so they will ask: cost of rent, car, car payment, insurance, utilities, food, travel in miles to get to both part time jobs.
If you actually have two part time jobs and have not reported any income then you may be screwed unless under the table then shhh shhh. If you have reported your wages and are concerned then the truth is...........
..............even when you go through all the bills and the employer was given a notice,you will still get denied for at least 5 weeks due to quitting and then most likely denied for not being able and available.
It is always best to get fired for absenteeism and get ui(unemployment insurance). My suggestion is you are ill but cant afford a Doctor because you have no insurance so you continuously call off due to the flu for 2 weeks.......still not fired then go to work for a day or two and have the flu again. You cant afford a Doctor so no Doctor note but as long as you call off every day before shift then you are covered....YOU NEED TO CHECK YOUR STATE LAWS FIRST BECAUSE I AM TELLING YOU MY STATE LAWS....CHECK YOUR LAWS!!!!!!!! Keep calling off before **** every day until they fire you or STOP SCHEDULING (same thing in my state) just remember you are sick and cant afford dr and after fired you miraculously heal!!!!!!

Call the hotline and speak to someone. I had a pt and a sales job (comm +tiny base) and I quit the sales job, it didn't affect my UI benefits. Is it possible to switch your resume address and start applying to some pt jobs in that area first before quitting?

Btw I think it's admirable you are working while you collect. I know it seems hard now but long run its the right decision, it'll all be okay in the end.

Part time jobs aren't counted toward "gainful employment" in the same way full time jobs are. There might be a delay between payments, and they might require another hearing. But in general, if you are staying in Connecticut and your present job is an unreasonable distance from your new home, it won't cause you to lose your unemployment benefits. Just make sure you continue to file on time, every week, even if they send you a notice saying that your current payment is on hold pending a hearing. Do a phone hearing if it's offered, and make sure you're there on time without distractions.

I think the only gap I ever had between payments was something like 3 weeks. It was a little rough but then each check for the 3 weeks was delivered, along with the current check, so I was able to get everything paid on time.
