Default Can I get MA unemployment benefits if I have to move out of state because my husband's job?

Hi,
Does anybody know the MA laws regarding unemployment benefits if you follow your spouse who gets a job out of state? I would really appreciate some up-to-date info on this.
I want to mention that mu husband it's not in the military, but I read about a lot of other states that will not disqualify spouses for getting unemployment benefits if they have to move because of their husband's job.


Thank you,

Did you work in MA? (not sure of the length of time required)
I worked in MA (and I don't even live in that state), and got full unemployment benefits (though I worked in MA for a long time). But the situation was due to a layoff.

I believe that you can't get unemployment benefits unless you were layed off, or fired from a MA job, which I think that is the way it should be.

Yes, I have been working in MA for the last 6 years.
I have friends that moved out of state to follow their relocated husbands with their jobs and they got full unemployment benefits, they had to provide documentation.
I will be forced to quit my job to follow my husband, his company offered his actual position in a different state because in MA will no longer exist, so he doesn't have a choice either, and since he's the one making more money and has better benefits he took that out of state job, so I have no choice, it's a voluntarily resignation but with a good cause. And most of the states offer unemployment benefits for this.
maybe there are persons on the forum that are working in this field or have had a personal experience about the same situation and can bring some input.
Thanks,
