Florida - Can I collect Unemployment if laid off ALONG with my military retirement?
Retired from US Navy 2002 (20 years)
working full-time until June 2009 (laid off)
The resource with the answer for this question .. irregardless of the state you will be collecting unemployment from is the USDOL Nonmonetary Chartbook Table 5-16.
It says that Florida only reduces benefits if the retirement payment is coming from a base period employer. The Navy is no longer a base period employer, therefore the retirement payment from the Navy should not be deductible from your unemployment benefits.
Feel free to verify this with the State of Florida.
