I quit my job in MI for another job in AZ but my training doesn't start for another 5 weeks.

I already moved to AZ and i'm now a resident.

You can not collect unemployment if you voluntarily quit your job. You can even call the MI unemployment office to verify this. In order to collect you would have needed to be laid off or fired or left due to medical reasons. You always collect from the state in which you worked even if you have moved out of state. Try to get a temp job for the next 5 weeks until your training starts.

Generally if you quit you do not get unemployment since you voluntarily left your employment. Sorry, but another thing... I hope you kept track of all your moving expenses, those are tax deductible on your taxes when you move for work.

This is from Michigan's unemployment department

"This issue is covered by Section 29(1)(a) of the Michigan Employment Security Act. The Act provides that if a worker quits a job without having a good cause “attributable to the employer” (that is, the worker quits and the employer is not at fault for the quit), then the worker will be “disqualified” from receiving unemployment benefits. The worker must then get another job and have earnings with that employer to “requalify” for benefits. But the employer from whom the worker quits will not be charged for the benefits, even if the worker requalifies and draws benefits."


This is from Arizona's website

"Can I receive benefits if I quit my job or I am terminated?

Generally, you must meet certain requirements to be eligible. You must be able to work, available for work, willing to accept suitable work, actively seeking full-time work, and be out of work through no fault of your own. If you voluntarily quit your job, the burden of proof is on you to show that you quit for a good cause. If you are terminated or discharged, your employer must show that you were terminated for a work-connected misconduct as specified in the Arizona UI Law.


Plus it all gets goofy because because you did not work for an Arizona employer they would have to bill Michigan for the Unemployment, even if you qualify for their benefits, and Michigan would most likely not pay anything.
