  3. I am a Home Care Nurse in NC. I had two spinal surgeries at same time, 10/2018. Unfortunately I have numbness from left knee, down leg through left ankle. The Neurologist and Neurosurgeon cannot clear me since I require a cane in order to walk due to numbness. Can I collect UI in NC? I have worked steady prior to surgery.

    • Anna,

      Unfortunately, personal reasons such as health issues are not considered. UI benefits are only offered to claimants who become unemployed due to involuntary reasons. Please call the Unemployment Office for clarification.

I have just moved here from out of state and collect uib through the other state while seeking work here. yes I have completed the change of address,,my question is while collecting uib will unemployment fund my schooling for truck driving? theres seems to be a huge demand for cdl-a drivers and obviously it would be something needed to get a specific type of job.

    • No they will not fund courses. You may want to check with them to see if they have schooling related to truck driving as a sponsored course.
