    Hello,
    I received unemployment benefits from the State of Washington and moved to North Carolina in June. I followed all of the guidelines, keep looking for work in NC and continued to file and receive unemployment benefits. I elected to pay taxes, so that came out of my benefit check. I got a job on January (so I received benefits for 6 months while living in North Carolina). When I filed my tax return, the state of North Carolina said I owed them taxes on the the unemployment I had earned from Washington and the assessed me over 6,000. They gave me a small credit since they realized that I had moved to NC in June. My question is can NC claim I owe them on benefits that were earned from Washington state. NC tax department states that I must pay them since I lived in NC for 6 months. Can you provide rule?

    Currently, work/live in NY but plan on moving to FL in Summer to be closer to my daughter’s father. Considering we have shared custody and living near each other would be in the best interest of the child (she is 5yrs old). I would like to give notice in March so as to give my employer time to find my replacement, on the other hand, I am afraid he may terminate me before June. Will I be able to collect unemployment benefits If I am terminated before resignation?

    • In NY, you will. NY has routinely been granting full 26 week claims to those terminated prior to their notice date – not just for the weeks between discharge and notice. Let’s hope your employer discharges you.

        UPDATE: Fortunately, I have been discharged, but not for the reason of resigning, but simply because my boss said: “there wasn’t enough work for me to do.” So, in the end, it all worked out for me, because I was going to quit anyway. Additionally, I was given a 4-week severance pay. I understand that in NYS I cannot collect unemployment if I have received severance pay. Yet, I’m confused about the timing of when a claim should be filed.

        Do I need to file immediately and report the loss of employment and my severance pay or exhaust the 4-week severance pay and then file a claim?
        Also, after filing the claim, should immediately inform them I have plans on moving to Florida or just file the claim, relocate to Florida and then advise of my new location?

        • File right away. Takes four weeks to get a claim up and running. NY will delay paying benefits after its unpaid waiting week for the four weeks severance, after which it will begin to pay you. Severance will not affect the dollar amount of your claim. Notify NY of address change immediately prior to your move.

    I live in PA. I’ve been collecting uc benefits since November when I was laid off. I’ve been searching for jobs ever since. My question is my husband has been offered a new job in Florida. My benefits will end I think the end in april sometime. Will I still be able to collect the last few checks I have if we move.
