Unemployment Texas
Both schools that I work for state that they will be sending out Letters of Assurance in May. School normally was to be dismissed first week of June. I do not want to sign a LOA because we do not know if schools will open back up in August. I worked almost every day during the school year and need my unemployment until it runs out. I have pre existing health issues and if the virus is still going strong I do not want to sub until it is a lot less risky. If I sign LOA will I be disqualified from unemployment for the summer?

Id see the threads below on this page. Every state is different, but some helpful info has been posted.
I would recommend checking the UI page in your state and seeing if they have a Covid FAQ.

Texas unemployment laws just changed.
Here is a "verbatim from the Texas Tribune.

"Texans who are at high risk or live with high-risk people such as people older than 65 and those who are immunocompromised can still receive unemployment benefits. Those who have been diagnosed with COVID-19, are in a 14-day quarantine or live in a household with someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus can also continue receiving benefits."

I wouldn't swear by something in a newspaper. I would go to the state website for information, getting it from the horse's mouth instead of second hand. Newspapers aren't always accurate and sometimes have an agenda.
