This answer was rated:

Can you get unemploymnet benefits if you resign from a job and are unemployed after that? Question pertains to Texas where I live and California where my family live (hence i filed california state return also)

Thank you for your question today, I look forward to assisting you. I bring nearly 20 years of legal experience in various disciplines.


In either state, resignation from a job is a disqualification for unemployment. If you were employed in Texas, that is the primary location for your answer though because the taxes you pay to California are not the same as if you worked there. They aren't establishing an unemployment account for you there and your employer is not either.


Regardless, resignation is a disqualification for unemployment.
