Hi! Thanks in advance for any insight.
Am I eligible to continue to receive benefits between now and August as long as I am still actively looking for an interim job?
I was laid off from my teaching job in December. I have been unemployed since then and collecting benefits. Just this week, I accepted a job offer that starts in August in a different district. Because of all the special rules designed to understandably prevent teachers from getting unemployment over the summer, I am concerned that this interim time may be considered a "recess period." Coincidentally (I think), I just received notice that I am subject to an upcoming UI benefits eligibility interview. Of course, I will be fully honest in this interview, but is there anything I need to be prepared for in this interview?
