Somebody is trying to tell me that I should file for unemployment and tell them I quit my job because of a relocation. Which was true. I worked up until the last minute and left town the next day. I gave my employer 6 weeks notice and told them I was resigning due to an upcoming move out of state. I left on great terms and I'm fully eligible for rehire.

But I didn't think I was eligible for unemployment and haven't even considered it, I don't see the point in going through all the hoopla knowing this, can someone tell me if there is even the slight possibility?

To make matters more confusing I now live in Washington State, worked for the last 2 years in Kansas and lived in Missouri. I couldn't even begin to think how to start the process assuming I wanted to.

Generally, you apply for benefits from the state in which you earned wages. You worked in Kansas, but lived in Missouri. Thus, you would be applying for Kansas benefits.

However, you need a qualifying separation. A qualifying separation is NOT that you decided to quit and move elsewhere.

All that said, unless you can provide more background on the circumstances of your move, you don't qualify for benefits in any state - unless:
  1. In Missouri - you followed a military spouse who had been relocated - not applicable since you earned wages in Kansas
  2. In Kansas - you followed a spouse due to a job transfer
