Since this seems to be the appropriate place to ask this, even though it has nothing to do with immigration stuff...

I'm the USC and was laid off last week. I will keep getting paid until 8/31/2012. I was a teacher's assistant so we get paid on a 12 month period, but we have the summers off. Anyway, I'm pretty sure I'll be able to find another job before 8/31/2012 as this happened to me last year and my principal was able to change my title, but find me another position. He says he can do that again, but until that's done, there is no guarantee of course. So, my question is: Should I go apply for unemployment now even though I won't be collecting until September? And, if I do get rehired and have already applied for unemployment, do I just notify them of my new employment status and it gets cancelled? Should I wait a month or two to see what happens with my job situation in case I get rehired?

I am a teacher, and I was laid off a year ago. I applied for unemployment right away, but didn't receive it until September as well. I suggest you apply right away, because you never know if you might just need it when the time comes. Once you start working, you just inform them of your situation. In my case, I started working but not full-time, so I just had to input the amount of money I was making per week online, and they deducted it from my overall unemployment and I still received a certain amount from unemployment.
