I just found out that I'll be laid off at the end of the month and I'm considering my options. If I apply for unemployment, collect it for a month, then leave the country for three months - would I still be eligible for unemployment when I return to look for work? I don't intend to try to collect while I'm out of Texas. Do you have a period of a year to collect your maximum benefit?
Thanks to anyone that can try to answer this - I've looked here and other places on the internet and can't find an answer. I'm sure I'll get more details once I actually apply for unemployment, but I'm trying to decide between this plan plus my small severance or a demotion/pay cut with the same company.
