she is actively looking and willing and able to be employed.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
sorry it took long to get back to you. I was disconnected and then had to call the company.

Hello?

Ok, then no, leaving the country won't affect her benefits. The unemployment office wouldn't even know she was out of the country and for all they know, she could be seeking employment while she was gone..

thanks

She requested unemployment while on a computer and had been told that they can track the URL.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
She did not get a check for that week that she was gone and they contacted her today. They wanted her to call back but she was put on hold every time she tried.

They don't have the time, manpower, or resources to do a CSI investigation into tracking down where a claimant is putting in a request for benefits from..

.

She likely submitted the request incorrectly or something was wrong with it. So a good explanation would be that she was seeking potential employment while she was out of the country if asked..

.

thanks
