You are unemployed until you start working.

The whole idea of UI is that you have lost your job and need the payments while you seek employment. Once you start working again, you indicate the dates you worked and how much you earned on the biweekly report form. Until you actually start working and earning wages that exceed your weekly UI payment amount, you may continue to collect UI.

This is not a normal situation. We have essentially been laid off due to a public health crisis. We don't actually know when the schools will reopen. It could be a very long time. The dates are constantly changing. So if I were you, I'd be looking for work and continuing your UI claim until you become gainfully employed again.

That's my take on it. (I've been unemployed and used UI several times in past years. So I pretty much know the ropes.)
