Hello,
I have two questions I was hoping someone could answer.

With Unemployment benefits in NJ I understand there is a two week wait for benefits to start - be mailed/deposited. Do those benefits date back two weeks to your filing date (Ie the first check is for two weeks) or do you basically miss the first week?

My second question is in regard to the tuition waiver program in NJ.
If already enrolled in school part-time and you have accumulated 35 credits towards a bachelors degree would you still be eligible to enroll in the tuition waiver program if you go to fulltime classes; even if the amount of credits needed in order to graduate are not met by the time your unemployment would expire? My concern is that with extensions up to 2 years in unemployment benefits realistically it would take at least another 3 years to accumulate the credits to graduate even if attending fulltime with the waiver program.

In simpler terms do you have to have the degree finished before your unemployment expires and can you receive a fulltime tuition waiver to continue/come closer to finishing your education if you were already in an educational program part time before being laid off?

Anyone have any experience in this?
Thank you

Go to your nearest One-Stop Career Center, attend a Reemployment Orientation and you will be able to see what services are for you. Good luck
