relocating to ca.

can I still collect benifits after relocating from Nevada?

When one is collecting unemployment and decides to relocate to another state .. my only suggestion is that you make sure the state you are collecting from has no restrictive "locality provision".

So to keep this simple I'm just going to copy and paste what DOLETA tells us in the comparisons of state laws.

Locality—Alabama, Michigan, Ohio, and South Carolina require that workers be available for work in a locality where their base-period wages were earned, or in a locality where similar work is available or where suitable work is normally performed. Illinois and Utah consider workers to be unavailable if, after separation from their most recent work, they move to and remain in a locality where opportunities for work are substantially less favorable than those in the locality they left. Arizona and Utah require that, at the time they file a claim, workers be a resident of their state or of another state or foreign country that has entered into reciprocal arrangements with the state. Oregon, Utah and Virginia consider workers unavailable for work
if they leave their normal labor market area for the major portion of a week unless the worker can establish that they conducted a bona fide search for work in the labor market area where they spent the major part of the week.
