I am considering volunteering for the meantime until I find a job. Would volunteering affect my benefits? Do I have to mentioned it on the continued claim form for number 6 which states “did you work or earn any money, WHETHER YOU WERE PAID OR NOT?”. Does volunteer fall under work?
It must in California. I know in my state it actually asks a separate question of whether you volunteered.
Frankly, I don’t know what would happen if you tell them you volunteered in any week. I do know the likely issue that would be raised is “able and available”
Maybe someone will read this who does know and tell us what happened to them.
