yes unemployment can not foward checks. In otherwords it must do directly to your new address. A post office will not forward it.

Tahiti is right on both points.

Quiting is not a reason to collect unemployment without good cause (ie, substantial change in job requirements from what you were originally hired to do).

There are a few reasons I can think of that they might have stopped paying:

1. A mistake on their part.

2. Your 1st employer may have received notification of your claim and put in an appeal.

3. Your most recent employer may have received notification and put in an appeal.

4. Unemployement may have done an audit and decided to contact your previous employers and may have realized there may have been a mistake because you quit.

And yes, they can require re-payment of benefits they deem you were not qualified to receive.

You can quit a job and collect for multiple reasons, for example, if you accepted a position and found once you started working the job that the hours were not as promised, or the duties as you understood them are not what was promised, you're being harassed in some way, etc. And it is true that unemployment checks cannot be forwarded, but I think you should keep trying to get through, only unemployment can tell you what the reason is..and I hope you are answering that you are able and available for work and have been looking for employment every time you responded to the questions over the phone every two weeks to claim your benefits..
