Will I still receive EI benefits if I go to school full time?
Anyways, I already applied for EI .. and was wondering will I still get EI benefits if I am going to school full time? Because I have worked consecutively for the past 3 years every week 30-35hrs while going to school sept - april and 40-50hrs may - aug.
I spoke with the lady from service canada over the phone and she said I would need to speak with someone when I find out how many hours and what days, I will be in school for. I would like to know if I can plan my school schedule around a timetable that will still allow me to get my full benefits.
I am considering doing part-time/online classes as well if it could help my situation. Service Canada didn't give me much help or tips, they just said you cannot receive any benefits while you are in school full time because you will be unable to work which is foolish because I was working full time while going to school full time.
Anyways, any help is appreciated.
