How can they cut off my unemployment because I am looking for an afternoon job due to my school schedule?

I have had this problem when I first started receiving benefits in June and was asked the same questions I was asked this time. I answered all questions the same. What can I do?

The best way to ascertain why your unemployment benefits are being terminated is for you to go down to the unemployment office and have a face to face meeting with one of its representatives. One reason why your benefits may be ending sooner that you like is due to the fact that you were only eligible for them for only a short period of time.
