Gotta Love Layoffs

So yeah, I just got laid off.  Nice huh?  I work for a new homebuilder, so I should have seen it coming.  Last day is today.

So how much does Unemployment pay?  DH has been on a cruise all week, he gets back tomorrow.  He is going to freak.

    Yeah the "official" day is 11/3 but we can leave today.... I'll get a months pay.  I am not freaking yet, I'll save that for DH; he's going to loose it.  And I am pissed b/c I just paid $60 to secure a spot at a daycare near work; there's no way we'd use it now b/c its too far from home or DH's work.   UGH.  Didn't realize people would actually fire an almost 8 month pg. woman.

  • Oh no!  I am SO sorry to hear that.  I've dealt with being laid off too, so I understand.  At least you'll be able to draw unemployment, and be able to stay home with the baby.  This also happened to a friend of mine when she was about 7 months pg, and she said it was a blessing in disguise, b/c she was able to stay home with her son for 6 months.  I don't know your situation, but hopefully it will be to your advantage.

    You can go on the state's unemployment website and it will show you how much your benefits will be.

  • I'm so sorry to hear that.  :( 
  • I am so sorry.  Been through that, just in May.  4 months with no job. 

    Unemployment pays max $500 a week.  So if you were making over say $40000... you will get $500 a week, before taxes.  Not sure what the percentages are if you make less money.

  • And they don't go by your most recent pay, it's like what you were getting 6 months ago or something like that.

  • Dang!  Go to the unemployment security commission's website and apply ASAP.  I don't think it's too hard to do.  Hopefully that will help.
