My husband left me after 29 years of marriage.  I have worked at latest job for 6 1/2 years. I am unable to afford the rent space where I live, nor do I want to be around where he was having affair with neighbor. I am moving to Arizona, and will actively be searching for work.  Any possibility of unemployment because of relocation?

I can understand your plight.

If you're relocating for a valid reason(which I see you're), please consider applying for UI benefits until you find a job.

Best wishes ! Feel free to write back if you have any other questions.

well I moved to Oregon with about the same plight....was promised a transfer did not get it from texas to Oregon where family was due to no housing and    could not live on 20 hours a week of pay and they lowes would not transfer or answer my questions about medical leave I thought I qualified for...and my house foreclosed.... I DID NOT GET UNEMPLOYMENT THROUGH TEXAS AND IF YOU DON'T WORK IN THAT STATE WHERE YOU MOVE YOU DON'T GET UNEMPLOYMENT THERE YOU GO BACK TO THE STATE ( OR STATES TO DO A COMBINED WAGE CLAIM) ....WHO  ever answered this did not answere this ...who are you Adrian.....
You don't get UI benefits from the state where you moved but must apply from the state where you last worked.

Employer generally pay certain taxes in the home state that contribute towards UI funds.
