You must be available for the type of work you are qualified for. Many jobs cannot work remotely (a grocery clerk, for example). You can focus your work search on jobs that can be done from home if you are qualified to perform the work. But if only looking for remote work substantially limits your opportunities to get back to work, you may not be eligible for benefits. You may also be denied benefits if you turn down work that is otherwise suitable and that requires you work at a location outside of your home.
