Claimants may attend training and continue to receive unemployment insurance benefits if a training plan has been approved in advance by a local workforce center or the Unemployment Insurance Division. Approved training plans must focus on short-term training programs for occupations that are in-demand and lead to stable long-term jobs. Training can take the form of classroom courses, employer-based training or training to start your own business, when appropriate.
With assistance from a local workforce center, individuals receiving unemployment benefits may be able to reduce or remove the weekly job-search requirement while enrolled in approved training. In addition, individuals receiving unemployment benefits may be able to receive additional benefits while in the training. If approved, a claimant could receive an added amount equal to half of what he or she receives in unemployment for up to 20 weeks. To get assistance, please contact your local Workforce Center.
