If you recently separated from active duty and are unemployed, you may apply for Unemployment Insurance benefits based on your active duty service. To be eligible for benefits, you must have completed your first full term of service and be separated under honorable conditions.
If you are taking classes that are not part of an approved training program, you must be willing to rearrange or quit classes if necessary to accept work. For more information see Going to School.
If you are in approved training through a reemployment assistance program for veterans, you are not required to seek or accept work while you go to school. However, you must make satisfactory progress on your training and when you are no longer in training you must immediately begin seeking work.
For information on reemployment assistance contact a Veteran’s Employment Representative located at WorkForce Centers throughout the state.
For more information about Unemployment Insurance - see the Information Handbook.
