Hi ...... I posted this topic earlier and have read the most recent post about unemployment but I still need some help

I am the USC petitioner for my husband and our interview is scheduled for the end of July.

I am a teacher and work 10 months out of the year. My annual income meets the standards for support, however I would like to claim unemployment benefits over the summer. I have been unable to find a summer position of any kind so far and am just trying to cover all the bases.

Would this be a great big NO-NO? I'm afraid they will get the wrong idea at the embassy but I'm not even sure if it's an issue since I've already provided proof of support and will still maintain working the 10 months as usual.

If anyone can shed some light on this I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance and God bless you all on this longggggggggggg journey.

I'm not sure about that embassy. But, if you made over the guildlines Already. I don't see a problem with that. I suggest you show your last 3 years income. It is not unusual for teachers to get unemployment benefits during the Summer. Your Unemployment benefits can be added to your Income on top of Salary for the Year(s) while as a teacher.

Suggest: Get a letter (School District Letterhead) that you will return at the beginning of the new School Year and Salary.

If you're only collecting unemployment during the summer layoff then it shouldn't be a problem. You have a job, and you'll be returning to that job when the fall semester begins. Furthermore, unemployment payments are not a means tested benefit. It's insurance that you and your employer paid for.
