My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: "Alabama"
I'm moving to South Alabama from California for school. I'm receiving unemployment benefits of $1800 / month. I have already collected 39 weeks of the checks. I heard that Bush approved an extension of 20 more weeks up to 59 weeks. However, I'm moving to South Alabama in a month. I'm debating if I should change residency. Will I get the rest of my unemployment benefits in South Alabama with the same amount of what I'm getting here in California.
1. If I change residency to Alabamian, I pay 1/2 of the tuition fees but may get lower unemployment checks.
2. If I don't change residency, I pay almost $300 per unit in Alabama but I may get 20 more weeks of California unemployment checks.
What do you guys think? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
