I am currently living in California collecting unemployment. I am not able to maintain a residency because of lack of funds so I may have to move back to Michigan. Do I have to register for Unemployment in Michigan, or just give Sacramento my change of address to Michigan? Or…Do I lose my unemployment benefit if I move from one state to another?
No, moving from CA to MI won’t cause it .. although it might if it were reversed because MI does have a “locality provision” which includes looking at the labor market and opportunities for work in your labor markets in the new area.
Just change your address and do all the other things you should do according to California’s instructions. This probably includes registering through Michigan for work and following their work search requirements.
And remember that the time you are moving may cause you not to be able and available for work .. so don’t fudge the truth when filing a continuing claim for benefits for that week.
God forbid you give CA an excuse to stop your benefits.
