Good Morning, I would really appreciate some help. I currently live in NY and have been receiving unemployment but have had no luck in finding work. I cannot afford to pay my portion of rent and continue living here and my uncle offered to let me live in his house rent free up to 1 year or until I can find a job, the mortage is paid off. He said I would only have to pay for my bills and food but I am worried if I move from NY to Chicago, I will lose my unemployment benefts.

You will be fine.

Most states have intrastate claims. Meaning you can move to another state, register there with that unemployment office and continue to look for work in your new state while collecting from your home state.

There is no problem. Yours is a very common situation. You continue to file claims with NY. All benefits are paid by NY. Just notify NY when you move. NY remains your claiming state, Illinois becomes your resident state.

New York State Unemployment requires that if you are are planning to move to another state, you must contact the Telephone Claims Center (TCC) before the move for information on transferring your claim.

You can call TCC toll-free at 1-888-209-8124 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. From outside of NYS, call toll-free at 1-877-358-5306.

We lived in MD when my wife got unemployed. We then moved to NC for my job and she collected her MD unemployment the entire time until she got a job recently.

Can't answer that without knowing which state you just moved FROM and in which state you applied for benefits. Also, what is the EXACT language of the paragraph denying your benefits.

Know that....

Trailing spouse benefits are specific to the state where you WERE employed.

You tell us your former state - we can tell you if you have a case. If your former state does not legislate trailing spouse benefits, you have no case, period.

Or, did you apply in PA?? If you did, you will lose, because PA is NOT the state where you were employed and, more importantly, PA does not provide trailing spouse benefits.

You need to apply in your former state of employment/residence. Only about 18 states provide trailing spouse benefits in your situation. If you are military, there are more options.

Why must your new job be in Arizona??? You need a good reason to quit. If you can't provide a better reason than you've given so far, the answer is no.

I must move to AZ to take care of my parents, but will need to find a job so I can survive. It is very difficult to find employment in AZ while living in CA and I cannot go to assist my family without employment. I was hoping there was a way to get some assistance while I lived up to my responsibilities and found employment in AZ. The job I currently have is not one I can do out of state.
