antedate waiting for job searching for work

There is not doubt that attempting to obtain employment while living on his personal savings and the monies which he derived from the sale of a house, is commendable.

Decision A-0549.92 Full Text of Decision A-0549.92

Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
antedate waiting for job searching for work
Summary:

True, he consciously opted to seek new employment 6 months rather than throw himself on the UI system which he may have had a perfect right to do. He deserves much credit for the steps taken to avoid the making of a claim. Nonetheless, that attitude, however laudatory, does not furnish "good cause". The delay in making the claim was induced by the best of possible motives on his part, that of seeking new employment rather than falling back on UI benefits. Such motives, pure as they were, do not on the present state of the law allow him to antedate his claim on the ground that he had good cause.
