but I'm going to ask it anyway.

If the SO gets a job in another state and I move with him but have not gained employment, can I still collect unemployment through TN?

That'd be nice right? ha

hmmm... well, I think some states still recognize common-law marriage, but if you don't present yourselves as married to anyone, that is out. You can try, but your basis for receiving unemployment would be because you moved for family reasons, and you might have a hard time getting your company to agree to pay the benefits. Now way you want to get married before you go?

Hi, Kiwi. I can give you some personal experience concerning unemployment compensation.

If you are now drawing unemployment from the state of TN, then your benefits will continue in your new state FROM Tennessee's Unemployment office.

My husband was down-sized in PA, and PA continued and then renewed his benefits even though we live in GA. Georgia, also, wanted to pay him benefits, but it would be illegal to draw from two states.

At that point, both states gave him the option of drawing from whichever state he wished. He chose PA because the benefits were higher. That has been over a year ago and he just got a letter from PA informing him that they were going to send him another 13 weeks of benefits because he is still unemployed ~ unsolicited from my DH!!

The funny thing is once my DH was let go, he was 63 so just retired and hasn't looked for another job (doesn't matter to PA).

Check with the state where you are living. If you are now entitled to unemployment they will not likely cut off your benefits just because you moved out of state.
