I've asked this in 2 different places... thought I would give the Montana forum a shot as the question is state specific.

If I leave my job to move out of state due to my husband starting a job there, can I collect unemployment?

I know some states allow that as a qualifying reason to be approved, but I am not sure about Montana.

I would check with the unemployment office or their website for eligibility matters.

To my knowledge, you would not be ineligible for unemployment. You willfully, and that is the key, left your job. I agree, you should check with the state you are moving to. I have been on Montana unemployment due to a layoff and willfully leaving your job for any reason will make you ineligible. Montana also has one of the lowest unemployment benefits in the US. I hit the state maximum payment and only made 30,000 a year.

If you are the spouse of a military member and the military transfers the member, you are eligible.

That is correct and I believe that is why the op is asking the question. In some states,, even if you are not military, if the spouse is transfered, the other spouse can voluntarily quit and still be eligible for unemployment.

To the op. Unemployment is paid by the state that you paid into, not the state you are moving to. You can file in the new state, but the original state is going to determine your eligibility. So what you need to do is check with your local employment/unemployment office. The rate of pay will also be determined by the original state.

I worked short contracts for uncle Sam and traveled all over the country. Often, contracts would have a 2-4 month gap, so I was filing all the time and it was. mess figuring out what states j was in during the cycle to file against and I always collected based on the rate of the state I paid into regardless of my location at the time.
