What is the process to receive a waiver of unemployment insurance eligibility?

  • At the time of applying for unemployment benefits, state that you are in school or that you are a student.

  • Once you indicate that you are attending school, a fact-finding document will be generated by the unemployment office and sent to you.

  • Send the form to your Tech Elevator Admissions Coordinator to complete, copy, and return to you.

  • Return the form to the office of unemployment.

  • When the completed form is sent back to the unemployment office, they will indicate whether you are considered available for work and are eligible for unemployment benefits (assuming you meet all other eligibility criteria).
