Unemployment With Military Retirement and Disability in Arkansas
I am a retired military receiving retirement income from the Air Force. I also receive compensation and pension disability income. Both total about $3K.
After retiring in Arkansas, I took a Civil Service position making $55K a year. It is what is called a term position lasting for 6 years. It appears that with the current economic situation, they may not be renewing the term position effectively laying me off.
I know that I have my pension/disability pay, but the loss of $55K annually is a huge loss and I’ll need to find another job. My question is, will I qualify for unemployment in AR based on my background?
Yes you should be able to collect unemployment, but I’m sure you’re wondering about what income is deductible from unemployment benefits.
I can help you with that by simply directing you to DOLETA.
