    Default Massachusetts UI - Moved to China

    My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: Massachusetts

    American Citizen (with Mandarin language skills)
    Occupation - Attorney
    Unemployed since March 1, 2009
    Moved to Out of state in July and registered with Interstate UI of Massachusetts.
    Started a 20 week extension a few weeks ago. (Believe that I am elligible for the initial 26 (done) + 20 (started) + 13 + 20 - though I could be wrong)
    Moved to Bejing, China as a base for a job search in Asia.

    1) Is it possible to live outside of the U.S. and collect UI if you are conducting a job search where you are residing?

    2) If not, what are my options with respect to reopening my claim at a later date? (Seeing as there are no guarantees I will find work - just as I could not find anything in the states).

    1.) Only the DUA can give you a definite answer to that but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    2.) It is likely but not guaranteed; it depends on a number of variable factors, most of which we do not know. Talk to the DUA. If you can't get through on the phone, go to one of the walk-in centers.
