EDD and School
I just got off the phone with the EDD interviewer "Paul". I, like most others here, became unemployed and registered for school about 5 months after looking, looking and looking for a job.
I didn't research before-hand and had my benefits suspended pending the phone interview. When Paul called, he asked my usual occupation, what the hours were, and if I was offered a full time job would I accept it and drop school? I told him like a hot rock! He never asked me if I was getting funds, loans, grants or otherwise. We spoke for about 10 minutes, he asked why I had enrolled into school, I told him to advance my skills and to ward off cabin fever.
Paul told me because of my willingness to drop school and accept a job, I was still eligible for UI Benifits, he'll send my check out today along with my claim forms for the other weeks.
Turned out WAY better than I thought it was going to!!!
I think your answer .. "Like a hot rock" should be the answer for everyone in California that is going to school and in a lot of other states as well.
Where might this be implied to be the correct answer?In the current years Nonmonetary Eligibility Chartbook, in the table labeled "treatment of students"
Thanks Staci, for doing things the right way and not having to ask a question .. about how to undo a mistake that can't be undone when you try to avoid the interview .. which is when I start worrying that checking on grants and government loans for school a person has accepted .. might be used to prove a misrepresentation issue for the way the questions were answered on the continuing claim form.
