Minnesota Unemployment

It looks like my Unemployment claim was approved. I saw under another thread that someone said they can claim Unemployment even through the summer until the benefit runs out. I was under the impression that we couldn't claim benefits during the summer since we don't normally work then. Does anyone know anything about this?

This is an unknown in CA as well.

If we are treated like all other IU benefactors, we will have access to our claim for 26 weeks, which of course includes the summer, but it remains to be seen if we will have our claims cut short because we are special.

Reasonable assurance of employment

Knelson13...You are right. Many districts send out a letter of reasonable assurance to substitute teachers before summer break. This disqualifies the subs from receiving unemployment insurance during the summer.

I'm guessing that if we return to work before summer break, and our district sends us a reasonable assurance letter, then we may not be able to continue receiving UI payments this summer. Hopefully this virus situation will change that. We'll see.

Knelson: How did you determine your claim was approved? Did you get notified by email? Did you go into your account and see something had been done? Please tell!

When I had my "phone interview" the woman said the only problem she saw was the date issue, which she corrected. I assumed from that, that I was approved, but I haven't seen any money, yet. Still cautiously optimistic, but I'll believe it when I see it. Thank God it is retroactive.

Sublime, I went into my account the day after I applied and it showed my benefit amount. I'm still a little leary about it but other people said give it a try. I am guessing the districts will still send out the letters before school is out so we wouldn't qualify for summer, which makes sense.

Wow Knelson, the next day! I applied in CA 12 days ago and no action is showing. I have read that it may take 2-3 weeks to get something in the mail in response.

I suspect that the longer people wait to apply, the longer it will take to process, because more and more people are applying.

Summer UI payments

I would not assume. that. Even if they do send out the letter. This is not a normal situation.

If the schools reopen and we start subbing again before summer break, then maybe districts will send the letters. But even then, if you're already collecting UI, your UI payments will continue until either you start and continue to earn wages that are the same or more than your UI payment, or your UI claim expires.That's just the way it works.

I'm guessing that since the districts cannot provide us work during the summer, our UI payments will continue, but we will be required to be looking for work. If you have a summer job, then you will have to report your weekly wages to EDD, and it will reduce your UI payment amount.

Once a claim is approved and you start receiving payments, you continue to submit weekly earnings reports to EDD. The only thing that impacts your claim after that is any weekly job earnings you may report.

All I keep hearing is about all the money the government is giving out. It will be interesting to see if we actually see any of it.

luv2teach2017, that's good to hear. You are right. Nothing about this is normal.
