If you are registered or attending school at the time you apply for unemployment benefits, answer "Yes" to the application question, "Are you attending school now?"
If you register for school after you applied for unemployment benefits, the next time you request your weekly benefits answer "No" to the question, "Were you able, available and actively seeking full time work?"
You will be provided a questionnaire or talk to a representative so you can inform the unemployment office about your schooling. If it is determined to be full-time reemployment assistance training, you will be informed that you do not have to seek work. Each week when you request benefits, you will be asked, “Did you make satisfactory progress in training?” instead of the questions about seeking work and being available for work.
