Back to Distance/Unemployment

When all this started last March, I filed for and qualified for Unemployment Benefits. Our schools started in the hybrid mode in the fall. I didn't feel comfortable going back but I did discontinue requesting Unemployment benefits. Last week our schools went back to distance. I never closed my Unemployment Claim in the fall. I don't have much left in my Unemployment Account but there is some. In your opinion, could I start claiming benefits again until my funds are exhausted? I am not trying to take advantage of anything but I really could use whatever I can get. Thanks for your help.

Yes, tell the truth, answer all questions honestly and if they choose to give you unemployment, praise God! I have been on unemployment the whole time and I recertify every two weeks and I answer all the questions honestly including that I have refused work because I am not qualified to do the online training. I figure I paid into the system for 45 years, so at this time when I need help and cannot work because of what the virus has changed, I have no trouble applying for it.

I agree 100% with Ima and 96. I've never applied before covid, but this is what it is for.

As I told my friend, it doesn't hurt to apply. Let them decide if you qualify. Good Luck.

I am with you, I turned 62 this past summer and was extremely grateful to be able to start collecting SS. I
had planned on taking it anyway, however, given the pandemic, the timing was a real blessing from the Lord.
