Hi everyone. My husband and I just went through the ringer on this because there is no answer online anywhere for Seasonal unemployment with the waiver for work search when you have a hire back date. He originally answered "NO" to the did you actively seek for work question for certification because the claim letter states you don't have to actively seek work if you have a hire back date. Then there was a hold up with payment. He spoke with someone at the agency and they said that next time you have to answer "YES" but you don't have to put in any employer information when they ask you where you applied. She said that this should work going forward. She fixed the issue and my husband will receive his weekly payment on Monday.
Just putting this out there because I couldn't find anything online with this information. It's very confusing when you have to answer YES to a question that they specifically state on your letter of confirmation that you don't have to actively seek work.
Hope this helps someone out there!

You could have asked this here. I'd have told you to "lie." If you want to keep doing phone interviews, explaining yourself, and getting the situation corrected each time, you may tell the truth, BUT it's really a lot of work. The system needs to be gamed sometimes, and saying "YES," when the truth is "NO," is sometimes ok like in this case where you are exempt from a work search.

Exactly. My husband brought that up to the woman at the agency too. She said it's not really lying since you're returning to work. The system is "broken" if you ask me. They better not put a Fraud hold on that account! LOL.
