You can't get benefits if you are in jail because you can't actively look for work. But I think you can resume it when you get out
Can You Continue To Collect Unemployment If You Go To Jail For 3 Months, If Not Can You Begin Collecting When You Come Out?
You can when you come out- but recently my boyfriend was told that he's under investigation because the job he lost due to prison said that he quit. So just have your ducks in a row and prepare to be cut off during investigations- which can take up to 6 weeks.
