Can I receive unemployment benefits from 2 diferent consecutive jobs?

I had a job for 4 months and I quit, 2 weeks later I got another job for 5 months and got laid off. If I claim unemployment benefits, would I receive it for my last job (5 months) or for all the time I worked (9 months) and who would pay for it, my last employer or both of them? Thanks in adavance.

You would get unemployment compensation based on your earnings during the last 18 months. You would file using your last employer, your benefits would count against his record. You only get one check.

You receive unemployment from the state, not your former employers. They pay unemployment insurance to the state, and they have a say in the matter. Whether you can or not does not make any difference in the procedure. You file, and they tell you what you get. You don't fill out the forms any different.

No, all contributions made toward unemployment went to one account, regardless of how many jobs you held.
