I quit my job in Nevada because my husband accepted a job in Wisconsin. Can I collect unemployment?

(Madison , Wisconsin)

My husband lives/relocated to Madison, WI and I just moved/joined him from Las Vegas, NV a few weeks ago. Will I be eligible for unemployment until I find a job?


I was a salaried employee. However, my husband has been living in a different state for over a year and now it's time for me to move so we can be a family.

Such relocation created economic circumstances which could not be overcome, it was economically impossible to maintain two residences.


Hi Renne,

Nevada is not a state that allows unemployment to move with a spouse (except for certain military spouses) nor is Wisconsin.

See the Nonmonetary chartbook at the DOL for how all states decide this issue.
