My advice would be to learn to spell correctly first as potential employers like people who can spell. It isn't "layed" it is "laid". How long you can draw depends on how long you worked. Some people can draw up to 99 weeks. Which is insane! As far as TENNCARE (correctly spelled) goes, are you married? If so, does your spouse have access to insurance through his/her employer? If you are married and he/she does then no you can not get TENNCARE. I would suggest calling DHS and asking them to mail you an application for TENNCARE and food stamps. Your circumstances, which I have no clue about, will factor into your being able to get assistance of any kind. Such as are you married, if so how much does he/she make, if you aren't whom do you reside with etc. Kind of hard to give you an accurate answer without knowing your situation. I will say this, I would not lie about anything to get any assistance as they are slowly wising up and I know 4 people who lost benefits last week alone for lying.

There are jobs available and sure they aren't any fun, they are hard. If you're to lazy or too 'proud' to do the work that is available then I guess you're going collect welfare....like the losers do.

I hope she takes a 99week taxpayer paid vacation. They can either tax imports or capital gains at a higher rate to pay for it. I hope she babysits and collects unemployment and welfare to the max. The only way to fix this system is to crash it.

Get everything you can. Go to the unemployment office, welfare, united way ,what ever you can find. When you do go back to work. You will understand why i say this. Prices are going up, wages going down, and those getting layed off are more than likely layed off just to be replaced by cheaper employees or temp workers. Take what you can get as long as you can. Once its gone, your life will suck as a worker bee again. Enjoy the "vacation " on the taxpayer dole.

Only an idiot rationalizes that it's ok to do wrong because others are doing wrong. Decent people do the right thing regardless. I need to thank the Lord more for blessing me with great parents who shaped me to not be a deadbeat like so many these days are.

My neighbor has been drawing unemployment forever. He has no desire to get a job or try to look for work.

Back a few years ago I was laid off and I only got to draw benefits for a few months. They made me bring in a list of places I went to every week to look for a job. If I hadn't found a job before my benefits ended I would have been out of luck and with no money
