Can I Work While I Am Drawing Benefits?

Yes, but you must report any earnings you have in a week you are claiming benefits. Any amount over $30 will be deducted from your weekly benefit amount. You must report all earnings for the week the work was actually performed, not necessarily the week you received payment.
