PA or NJ Unemployment benefit filing on approved I140 ?

Recommended Posts


           Currently, my H1B to H4 change of status and H4EAD application is in process. My H1b was withdraw due to layoff. I have approved I140. Kindly please advise on below questions.

Q1> Is it possible to file unemployment benefit in Pennsylvania state? or New Jersey state? 

Q2> If Q1 answer is yes, then unemployment filling while GC in progress will affect Green Card process in future (considering new employer supporting GC process in future)?

Thanks for your suggestion in advance.

For unemployment benefits, you have to be willing and able to work in any job. An I-140 is not work authorization, so you can not file for unemployment benefits.
