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.
