can I collect unemployment in Michigan but live or look for work in another state

I am getting unemployment from Michigan but want to move to Florida. Can I do this legally?



Hi Jane Doe,

I would be very careful if you do this.

Michigan has a locality provision. Click current year, then nonmonetary Page 23.

You are considering leaving one the hardest hit states in this recession and moving to another of one of the hardest hit states.

I don't know what suitable work is for you, but you might consider taking a visit to the BLS first.
