I am a retired USAF Reservist, who has the Post 9/11 GI bill. I am also a laid off union employee. Which makes me not have to worry about looking for/be available to work, because I am on a list for work at the Union. I was told I it is most likely will be up to 1 year before I will have work since it is first on the list, first off. I am thinking on using the GI bill to keep myself busy, and get a few more dollars in cash to help supplement the meager unemployment wages. I also hope to use work study also which is tax free VA money. So this is complex, but my question is will my tax free money from the GI Bill and Work study be counted as wages, thus reducing my unemployment. Complex I know and likely will have to wade through the mess at the Unemployment office VA reps. But thought I would ask if anyone else has had this experience before I try to explain this to the Vet Rep at Unemployment! I appreciate anyones experiences, good or bad!

The GI Bill money and VA workstudy pay are considered scholarships.
The VA Rep at the unemployment will know all of how this works - that's part of the job training he/she receives.
