Did you work in NJ? If not, then, as far as I know, you can't claim from NJ. Unemployment insurance is jointly financed through federal and state employer payroll taxes so if you haven't worked in NJ, you haven't paid any UI taxes. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure that's how it works.

You must collect from the state you WORKED in.

If the distance is great, there is some reciprocation where you can collect from the state you live in and that state bills the worker state.

There is no such thing as NYC benefits...all benefits are STATE benefits.

OP...no you CANNOT collect from New Jersey.

It really doesn't matter where you live, the only thing that matters is where the company is reporting your income and state they are paying unemployment comp. insurance.
