What happens to my unemployment in California if I decide to move to another state where I have family to help me while I am looking for a job in the other state?
State/Country relating to question: California
I have tried to contact the unemployment office to ask, but to date I have not received a call back and no one has answered the phone.
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.You will still receive the same amount unemployment benefits if you move to another state where you have family while you look for a job there.You will normally be unable to receive benefits during the time that you're moving, since EDD considers you unable to work at that time, but after your move, you will be eligible for the same amount in unemployment benefits that you would receive if you didn't leave California.Joseph41088.9326784722
