If you have reasonable assurance, the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) cannot use your school wages to compute your benefits and you may not have enough wages to qualify for benefits. </p><p>If you DO NOT have reasonable assurance, TWC can use your school wages to compute your benefits, so you may qualify. </p></li><li><p>Q. Does accepting incentives to resign affect my benefits? </p><p>A. If you accept incentives to resign, you might not qualify for benefits. However, if your employer would have laid you off anyway, you could qualify even though you resigned. </p><p>Q. Would I receive benefits if I signed a letter of resignation rather than accepting a layoff?</p><p>A. You may receive benefits if your employer would have let you go due to budget cuts, regardless of whether you signed the letter of resignation.</p><p>Q. What should I do if I get a school job (or get reasonable assurance of a job)?</p><p>You should call a TWC Tele-Center immediately at 1-800-939-6631 once you have reasonable assurance of a job with a school.</p><p>Wage-Pin-Tax-Date*</p></li></ul>
