If I relocate to another part of the state of Missouri, will I be able to collect unemployment benefits while I am looking for a job?
I am currently employed at a job that is receiving less work. I have been cut down to 4 days a week in the past and it looks like it might happen again in the very near future, provided the business will even be able to remain open. I am wanting to relocate to another part of the state with a lower cost of living rate.
Would I qualify for unemployment benefits if the business does not close down if I still relocate to another area too far to drive back and forth to current job?
No. A quit to relocate to an area just because of the cost of living would be disqualifying. It would be best to wait until laid off.
