Unemployment Insurance Claimant Training

A claimant may receive unemployment insurance (UI) benefits if attending school or a training course approved by Iowa Workforce Development (IWD).  While attending approved training for individuals, the claimant does not have to be available for work or search for work to continue to be eligible for UI benefits. 

The Reemployment Services (RES) program is designed to assist Unemployment Insurance (UI) claimants identified as being at risk for long-term unemployment return to the workforce as quickly as possible.
