My question is this: I am working part-time (20 hrs/wk) and I get unemployment for the other 20 hrs. My 99 wks will be up in May. But because I am working part-time I'm only in tier 3. Will I be able to continue to receive unemployment if I am working part-time after my 99 wks?

My mother just lost her job today and will be filing for unemployment tomorrow. Given the job market in her town in KY, she is considering moving to my town in another state where the job market is stronger and she has a support system. My question is, she will be moving in a few weeks and will be seeking employment in both states- if she moves out of state before she finds a job, will she be able to collect here unemployment benefits as she lives in another state and is looking for work there? How does she ensure she can continue to receive benefits as she is living in another state and looking for work?

To whom it may concern: I was laid off a few months ago from the Staffing firm I worked for four years. Most companies won't even look at my resume because I do not have a degree. Would I be able to take a five month course to get my esthetician license as a full time student and still receive unemployment? This is all new to me, and I'm trying to do everything right. Please email me! Thank you.

Morgan,
Did you ever get an answer to this question? I am getting ready to get laid off and I have been wanting to go back to school forever. I heard you can draw UI while going to school, but I don't know any specifics. Thanks.

I received my letter to let me know it was time for my 6wk review last week. I went today to do it online and it said the window was closed. I noticed the date on the letter was the 19th of Nov. I received my letter on the 28th. I am going to have to go see someone face to face tomorrow. Will I be able to still get my benefits since missing the time frame due to it arriving late?

My husband is off at school and receiving benefits. They are constantly screwing things up. He recently, recieved two payments a day a part. We didn't think anything of it because we're pretty sure he's back owed. So we paid bills, got food etc. Well apparently not, unemployment made a mistake and is ow trying to reverse that deposit. The first time he tried to czll and got a busy signal, for hours. We have been charged two $29 nsf fees ( the last one caused an over draft) because the amount of over payment check wasn't in our account. We recieved no letter stating they over paid or that they were going to take that money out. This is their mistake, not his! He can not get througn to anybody, why don't they just take the over paid money from his very last check. Or will they try and take it from his next available one, which is this coming week?

Because of the insurance changes this year the company I work for is in the process of going under. They asked us (the ones that would) to hang in there that it would take about 6 wks to get this all under control. Our cks are always late (up to 4 days late) they give out bad cks (not me yet) and it has been 3 mths instead of 6 wks. I dont feel like I can handle this any longer. Its been one long mental rollacoaster. So my question is if i quit will I be able to draw unemployment? Or just go and ask to be layed off bcause i cant handle it anymore. Rumore has it that she will contest anyone that applys for unemployment so that scares me.
