Looking to attend College, what are my Unemployment Benefits options

Q) I filed a claim in the middle Oct and have been approved for my weekly benefits. I’m looking to attend County College of Morris and would like to know what my options are regarding what assistance I may be eligible for, if any?

A) You may be able to receive unemployment benefits and go to school. But you need to be able to prove to your state that you still qualify for the unemployment benefits while you are attending school. Unemployment insurance is for people who are looking, and available, for work. If you can’t prove to your state’s unemployment department that your class schedule won’t interfere with your job hunt, you may lose your right to unemployment benefits.

  1. I have been trying for over a month to get my unemployment claim paid. I cannot claim it online and I’ve been on hold for hours. This is absolutely insane, I was actually just laid off and not just sitting around this past year. I need these benefits and have never even claimed them before. I’ve done everything I can and have not been able to reach anyone.
