A worker who is not "able and available" for full-time work is inelible for unemployment benefits. However, maintaining eligibility does not require that the worker be able to undertake their regular employment -- only that the worker be able to accept full-time work in some
field of employment.
Similarly, an employee who voluntarily quits work, is ineligible for unemployment benefits. However, if the person quits based upon the documented advice of a physician, then the employee quits with good cause and is eligible.
BotXXXXX XXXXXne, to obtain unemployment, you must be availble for full-time work in some job capacity, and you must quit based upon your physician's written advice.
Hope this helps.
