Can my spouse claim for unemployment benefit while on H4 EAD

Recommended Posts


My spouse was working for day care till last week. Due to the current COVID situation, the day care has placed her on standby status and the center is closed. Since she is on H4 EAD, can she claim for unemployment benefits from state of Michigan?

If she claims this benefit, would there be any immigration issues with respect to GC processing for myself and for my spouse?

For unemployment benefits, the person has to be willing and able to work in any job. With an H4 EAD that is the case, so she should be eligible foe unemployment benefits.

These are not government benefits, they come out of an insurance employers pay into. So there is no issue for the GC.
