Can I Still Receive Benefits If I Am Working Part Time?

If you are working part­time, your Weekly Benefit Rate will be reduced by an amount equal to two­ thirds (2/3) of your gross wages for that week, rounded to the nearest dollar. To be eligible for this payment the law provides that: you must be employed less than full­time; the number of hours you are working during the week is less than the number of hours customarily considered to be full­time for that job and/or employer; you must be available and looking for full­time work; You did not refuse additional hours.
