Federal and State laws require that we determine if school employee wages can be used in the weekly benefit calculation for weeks claimed during normal break periods between years, terms or periods. This can result in your benefits stopping while we review your individual situation.
Some types of school employees will be able to qualify during break periods, if otherwise eligible, and may not experience a wage-review delay. These positions include maintenance and janitorial workers, food preparation and service workers, and early intervention and pre-k service support workers.
Other types of school employees who have reasonable assurance to resume work after the break period may not be eligible for some or all of their benefits during the break period.
This process can be time consuming, and although we understand you are eager to receive your benefits, you do not need to call us. Complete and return the School Employee Questionnaire as soon as possible. We will contact you if we need additional information.
