Can I collect unemployment after working abroad for a foreign company and being laid off?
I worked abroad for a foreign company and was made redundant. I live in NYS. Can I collect unemployment? When I applied online, there is only the option to enter the tax id of the employer so i can go no further. it is nearly impossible to get a live person on the phone in Albany. What do you think?
I think no. Unemployment in the US is funded by US employers. You must have enough wage credits in the last eighteen months from working in "covered employment" to be eligible. And your most recent separation from covered employment must be qualifying.
