Can I Receive Benefits If I Work Part Time?

If you work while claiming benefits, you can earn up to 25 percent of your weekly benefit amount before any deduction is made from your benefit payments. All earnings over 25 percent of your WBA are fully deductible. Working part­time will extend the time you may draw benefits within your benefit year. However, the maximum benefit amount does not change.

While working part­time you must continue to look for work and be able and available for your regular type of work. The goal is to return to similar pay and hours you had prior to filing your claim.
