Hi Jose,

Your issue is one of not being able and available for work. Limiting your ability to work is disqualifying.

So what you need to do is read section AA40 of the the California eligibility guide. It's all about what will and will not disqualify for unemployment while attending school.

This is where you will either find a reason for California to reverse your denied unemployment benefits decision or understand why and how you were disqualified for unemployment.
