How long after leaving a job can you file for unemployment?
Find answers to your legal question.

How long after leaving a job can you file for unemployment?

And if you worked for a long time at a job and got laid off and then found another job for a short time, can you still apply for benefits for that original job?


Unemployment asks for the last 18 months of earnings so you need to file within this time period if the job was permanent full-time. Now, if you are currently at another full-time job, NO you cannot file. Because you have found another full-time job. But if this job you have now is part-time, yes you can file because you are still looking for full-time employment. You will receive a letter in the mail within 10 business days if you are still eligible to file for benefits.

If you are saying you got laid off, then found another job then quit that new job, then you are not eligible for unemployment because you had a new job and then quit. Does not matter how long you worked previously, or that you where laid off, you had gainfull employment and quit that makes you NOT ELIGIBLE

immediately and yes to the second part

Yes. But hurry up.

You apply the same day.

This is why I love recessions.
Every time we have one, the great American middle class gets an education.
