You need good cause for a quit in order to collect unemployment benefits.

Some states have a one week waiting period after application before benefits are paid. As a rule, if one is laid off, or fired (provided your employer can't prove intentional misconduct), benefits are paid.

Quits are a much higher hill to climb. Why would you think you can quit and collect benefits?

Not me, but a 25 yo family member, long story, but they have it in thier mind that welfare and food stamps are an alternative to a job.

Welfare and food stamps are a poor substitute for a job, and the worst I've heard with those benefits is that you have to wait 90 days.
