I'm getting a strong feeling myself and several others will be laid off by the end of the year. The writing is all over the wall

Anyway I relocated for this job away from my family. In the event I am laid off I'll want to move back to PA. At the same time I don't want to give up any unemployment benefits.....does anyone know if you can transfer UI state to state?

It may depend on your state rules. If laid off in one state you may continue unemployment benefits in that particular state depending on the move and timeline and circumstances of the case. Check out the current and prospective states for specifics.

First of all you have to qualify for the benefits. In Missouri that means looking back at the last 18 months and earning enough money to qualify, which is the minimum $1500 in one quarter and half that in another. If you quit a job to move here that would be a consideration also. You might have to do a combined wage claim with PA and MO. To see more specifics, go to Missouri's Department of Labor and Industrial Relations

Good luck to you.

Yes.. I moved to Colorado while still collecting unemployment from MO. Make sure you file in your initial claim in MO and not your new state. Once you move, call the claims number and give your new address. You will collect from MO (via direct deposit) and all important UI mail will be sent to your new address. MO does require you to register with your new states jobs office. They do check to make sure you have complied with that. Not a big deal.

But it all depends on the state. Also, MO caps out at about 3-400 dollars. So, if you move to CO, you might think about filing a claim there if its more. But I am not sure, it all might depend on the last state you were employed in.

I came from Mt to Mo receiving unemployment right now at this current time; no problem because you are still elegible in the state where you were working & accumulated your quarters!!!!!!!!!!!! Great!!!! And if you need to reapply for your claim (meaning your current claim money runs out) you can do that but BE sure to still apply for benefits every 2 weeks even if you are not getting money at that time cause when your claim starts again if you don't apply ev ery 2 weeks they won't pay you for the weeks you didn't apply even if you are elegible for those weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hope this helps any one!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You will need to reapply for the benefits, also if you are retired or any other income you recieve they will count that money against your benefits. Every State rules are different, most other States just it depends on full time employment and the time frame you have worked usually the last 6 Months or so is how they figure your payments.
You can google MO unemployment benefits and most of the information will be on the State website.
