Which state should pay me unemployment benefits?
I live in Maryland, work in Washington, DC and paid by a company in Virginia. I recently got laid off and I need to know which state is responsible for paying me unemployment benefits. Thank you
I can't really say, because I don't know which jurisdiction your employer paid unemployment taxes on the wages.
Personally, I'd file in the state where I live .. and let them figure this out for me if I couldn't from just looking at pay or direct deposit info.
Cross your fingers it's Virginia because DC's unemployment system sucks!
