Unemployment benefits question...
Tue, 07-14-2009 - 3:30pm

I'm about midway through my 26 weeks of unemployment benefits. A local firm has a 6 month, full-time position that I'm qualified for and plan to apply for.

If I get the job and work the 6 months and then the position ends, do I then again qualify for unemployment? Or because the position had a definite end date would I not? I'm in MN, if that matters at all.

I will apply for the job regardless, but I'm just curious.

I received unemployment after I had worked in a temporary position.

I am in MN too and i think in reading the unemployment website (due to dh being laid off) I think I read something about this. I would search the website a little bit and see if you find it. I am not sure but I think you would still have the remainder of the 26 weeks that you have left. I do know it said that accounts are active for 1 yr at a time.
