Collecting unemployment while alternate route

Post by Rpc10 » Sat Feb 23, 2019 6:43 am

Does anyone know if you are allowed to collect unemployment benefits while attending the academy as an alternate route candidate?
I just separated from the military and I’m collecting benefits, I want to make sure I can still continue to collect them while in the academy, and the process to inform the state so they don’t suspend my benefits as well.
Any information or past experiences would be helpful. Thanks again!

Posting an update.

So you are allowed to collect unemployment as an alternate route, they stopped my pay for a few weeks to do an evaluation of the training program, and after they verified it all they gave me the back pay. Good information if anyone gets in the same situation.

I wish I was aware of this when I went Alternate Route. Thank you for sharing.
