If I go to real estate school will my unemployment benefits stop?
Q) I am collecting unemployment at this time. If I go to real estate school will my benefits stop?
A) Whether or not attending real estate school would affect your eligibility for unemployment benefits would depend on the specific rules and regulations in your state. In general, to be eligible for unemployment benefits, you must be actively seeking and available for work. Attending school full-time may be seen as an indication that you are not available for work and could potentially affect your eligibility.
However, some states may make exceptions for individuals who are attending school or training programs while receiving unemployment benefits. For example, some states may allow you to attend school or training programs if they are related to your previous employment or if they are part of a program designed to help you find work.
To determine whether attending real estate school would affect your eligibility for unemployment benefits, you should contact your state’s unemployment office. They can provide you with information on the eligibility requirements in your state and assist you in filing a claim for benefits if you are eligible. Additionally, you may want to consult with a local employment attorney or advocate who can help you understand your rights and options.
No. Your benefit should not stop if you go to Real Estate school. However after being licensed any income from Real Estate will need to reported when you certify if you are still collecting unemployment. Please verify this answer by calling your local Unemployment Office as each state administrate their program differently.
