Finding information on Unemployment Benefits for Trialing Military Spouse is extremely difficult. I spent 4 months navigating the web, calling OneSource, JAG office, even department of labor. Every state has its own laws concerning unemployment insurance. You must file a claim from the state at which you worked. The following document was prepared on April 2010 and it talks about granting UI to Military spouses. You will find a table that outlines which states grants UI to spousal transfers. Additional support for your claim to benefits. ( If you don't find your state listed on either table, keep searching on google. New laws are signed every day. )
However, you need to know when the law's effective date is before filing your claim. For example, DC signed into law UI benefits for spousal transfer on May 14, 2010. I filed for UI on July 11, 2010. The law became effective July 22, 2010. My claim was denied because they based my case on the law that was "in effect" the day I filed. So now I have to file an appeal.
To find the effective date for your state contact your state DoD Liaison representative.

I have a denied claim pending and was wondering if you could tell me where to find this document? Looks like you can't give the link but maybe you can tell me key words to google. Thanks.
Many parents would love to stay home with their kids, but with the economy the way it is, how would you replace your income? Then when you find your perfect job, you get transferred and have to start all over. Our company is looking for moms and dads who are serious about building a business that can either provide some extra cash to pay for the extras during the month or who want to stay home full time.
We are a well-established wellness company with a great reputation. We were green before green was popular and provide our customers with only the highest quality ingredients on over 300 products at a price that usually beats the big box stores. What's really great is that if you get transferred, you take your business with you. I have been with them for three years and have never been disappointed.
If you are looking for a viable alternative, check into my link below. I’ll get back with you and give you the information you are looking for. You’ll get the information online and I promise I won’t try to pressure you. You will be equipped with information that could change your life.
No outside links allowed unless approved. If they want the information they can contact you through your profile. This message has been edited. Last edited by: Navywifeinparadise,
I'm in need of info from anyone who has done this succesfully in NJ. I'd appreciate any advice!
Are you wanting unemployment benefits or information on the wellness company?
I'm trying to get a clear info on how to collect unemployment benefits as a military spouse from state of NJ. I have attempted calling all telephone numbers of all state of NJ as well as each local unemployment assistance numbers, however, I wasn't able to reach to speak to an operator who can direct me with proper assistance.
I have researched and found that I am eligible to claim unemployment if I move to accompany my husband. I am currently employed and have not resigned from my position which I have held since the last 10 years.
My questions are:
-When is the latest that I should resign from my current job in order to be eligible for military spouse unemployment claim? My husband's order was dated 6/14/2010.
-Do I have to be physically out of NJ to claim?
-How do I file such claim, people advise me not to apply online since I have to provide a proof of my husband's order. Do I have to file in person? If yes, where?
-I also understand that this specific claim will not be charged to my employer's account. Will they be notified at all if I file a claim?
I would appreciate your respond so much.
Thank you in advance.
You can do a search on google using the following key words "national conference of state legislature unemployment compensation for military spouse". Go to the first result then navigate to your state and read the qualifications carefully.
It may be easier to file in person because confusion is eliminated when you have proof in your hand. But I filed my claim online because I was living in a different state. Be sure to have the following (1) Your husband's PCS order with your name is on his orders. Make sure to white-out his SSI (2) your marriage license. Every state is different so they may ask for additional material.
If they deny your claim the first time, be sure to file for an appeal. That's when you submit your proof.
Your employer will not be charged because your claim is coming out of the state. However, the clerk filing your claim is following "standard procedure" or their claims department is automated and a letter may be sent to your employer that a claim is filed against them. Don't worry about this part, just follow the instruction for appeals and you'll be fine.
Above all, make sure you qualify, file within the state's effective date, your name in PCS order and follow instructions.
If you need additional help contact your state DoD Liason Representative. Do a search for "DoD Liaison representative Ed Kringer". In that PDF you will find your state representative and contact information.
Thank you so much. I have emailed the DoD Liason Rep, hopefully I will receive info soon. It is so frustrating calling the state & local unemployment numbers as they are automated and not handled by human. By the way, my name wasn't on his order, does he need to get a revised order with my name on it? Also, what is the effective date of the order? Is ist the date that the order is written or the required reporting date to the new station?
Get his PCS orders revised with your name on it if you can otherwise you will not receive unemployment compensation plus other programs DoD offers to military spouses. The effective date of order is the date he is required to report to duty at his new station.
Neither. From the JFTR:
"The date the member is required to begin travel from the old PDS, the member’s home, PLEAD, last TDY station, safe haven location or designated place, whichever applies, to arrive at the new PDS, home, or PLEAD, on the date authorized by the transportation mode authorized and/or used."
Does it mean that it is the date that he is to leave from his old duty station?
It may not be as difficult as you think. I just moved from Indiana to Washington State with my DH and all I did was apply online with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. the conclusion of my case was that I voluntarily left employment without good cause in connection with my work to relocate to another labor market with a spouse. My employer was relieved of charges but I am still qualified. I just do all the necessary processes online (filing my vouchers weekly for looking for employment and such). I really don't want to not work but until I find a good job here this is going to help a lot. Leaving my career was the hardest thing I have ever done. I had been with the company for 6+ years and had worked my way up to a really great position! But I am happy out here so far! Hope everything works out!
my boyfriend is USAF and we are moving. Since we live together and I am dependant on his income I have to move, too. Does anyone have any experience with this situation in NJ?
you are not married therefore no state will allow you to claim that you HAVE to move with him. as such it will be considered a voluntary move and not eligible for unemployment most likely.
There can be no freedom without sacrifice
