Part time (8 credit hrs) and unemployment?
by Kristina Lewis
I just had to file for unemployment, but I'm in school only part time (8 Credit hous m,w,f from 8-10:50) Every other day, and weekends, I am available any time to work.
Do You think I'll still be able to get benefits, if not, what could I do because I live on my own and will be homeless if i don't have income?
Since you are located in IL, I'll just direct you to the Illinois Unemployment Law Handbook. The link to it is on this page.
The relevant information I think you are looking for begins on page 628 of the handbook.
It would be great if you could come back and post a comment about how you think the information will either help you or hurt you.
