I just received notification that I will be laid off as of next Friday. I live in FL but the company I work for is based in MA. Do I file unemployment with FL or MA?

I will be happy to continue further and do everything I can to provide you with the service you seek.That all being said, with regard to your post, I am very sorry about the lay off.You want to apply in the state you worked. Florida. That is because the employer, having workers working there, pays those taxes. Even if you lived and worked in different states (with employer being yet in a 3rd state), you can still file at YOUR state, and due to the Federal Interstate Benefit Payment plan, it gets worked out once you file.-------I hope this clarifies and I wish you the best.
