Can I get unemployment or collect if I quit my job to go back to school full-time in NYS?
I am 38 years old and I have worked in retail for 20+ years as a store manager. I want to go back to school full-time to become a teacher, simply because I want a more stable job and I love children. Can I quit my full-time job and collect unemployment while I go back to school for my Master's Degree in Education?
One of the basic requirements to receive unemployment benefits is that you must be able and available for work.
It would be a quit for personal reasons and disqualifying.
