I live in Florida. Can I collect temporary unemployment due to health problems with my infant?
My name is Tanya and I am currently not working. My infant has multiple health issues which requires me to go to frequent doctors visits. She has had 2 blood transfusions and may need another. She also has a heart defect. I have no other means of an income. Am I able to collect unemployment? I was not laid of or fired.
The reason is because in almost all states you must be able and available for work to collect.
If I knew more about why you aren’t working I could provide more information. There is the possibility that if your separation from work is qualifying that you would be entitled to benefits once the A&A issue is removed, which is the main problem for anyone with a health related issue to be able to collect unemployment in almost every state.
