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. If you are seeking unemployment insurance benefits because you were fired you may not qualify if you were found to be at fault. You must be out of work through no fault of your own. Workers who are laid off for economic reasons due to a plant closing, a reduction-in-force (RIF), or because of lack of work, for example are eligible for unemployment benefits. But employees who are fired are not always eligible for unemployment benefits if it was due to a fault on their part. If you can prove that you were fired for no foult of your own you my qualify for unemployment insurance benefit.
