Instructions and Help about When 8850 Form Unemployment

Okay what I'm about to tell you may make the difference between whether your unemployment claim gets accepted or rejected so this is very important as you're filling out the claim and I'm giving an example of the state of California now your state may be different but I think in most cases it'll be similar the key question in the process of filling out your application is whether you've been laid off or voluntarily quit now if you think about it this is a very subjective question and particularly if you haven't quit your job yet then you can play it to your advantage if you've already quit your job and certainly you can try to frame it in the best possible light for your situation so let's take an example a consultant works for a company and he has to travel and he decides he doesn't want to travel anymore so he could quit or he could get himself laid off so he goes to his employer and he says I'm no longer able to travel due to personal reasons and his employer will come back and say well travel is part of your job description and he repeats yes but I'm unable to travel due to personal reasons so they mutually agree that he has to resign well in that case he's been laid off he hasn't quit so when you get to that question on the form that's what you select laid off as opposed to voluntarily quit and then you provide an explanation in terminology that's the most favorable for your situation now if you've already quit your job this may be a little more difficult but you might as well give it a shot because it is a subjective question and you're just framing your answer in the best possible light which is your right so that tip alone might have just saved you thousands of dollars but there's a lot of resources available to you now that you're unemployed just go to our website as it's shown there on the screen and we'll send you the free full report on how to submit your unemployment application and all the resources that are available to you as an unemployed person thanks for tuning in
