Customer Question
Hey - I was teaching...
Hey - I was teaching in China where I had a spine injury and I am waiting to get pins out which is holding me back from worknig but I dont know if I made enough to qualify for unemployment insurance in IL I made 10,000 Chinese RMB a month plus housing/food - all in all about $1500 a month. Im also having problems with my employer in China, they are a state school which doesn't help.
Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: well first off I dont know much about unemployment- but I graduated university in 2015 and taught in China last year - I was under contract until June of this year. In march I fell off of a roof at work and broke my spine I am now back in the united states, the chinese did a really good job on the surgery and I'm getting pins out in a few months - which is proving problematic in terms of seeking employment the recovery period could be 1-2 montsh months maybe more* thats 3 months away or so, so no one wants to hire me. I am looking into collecting unemployment due to fiscal concerns. I am trying to figure out if my last job payed enough to qualify.

Hello,

Thank you for the information. Can you please tell me if your actual employer who paid you was a U.S. employer (versus a Chinese employer) and if so what State did they pay unemployment taxes to?
