Can I File For Benefits If I Am Working Part-Time?
If you are working all of the hours your employer has available for you and your gross pay is less than your weekly benefit amount plus any dependentsÆ allowance, you may be eligible for partial benefits. However, you must still be able, available and actively seeking fulltime work.
Any income must be reported and staff will determine whether the monies will have an effect on your weekly benefit amount. When you file your initial claim or reopen your existing claim, you must report any of the following monies earned during that week: wages, pensions, annuities, holiday pay, vacation pay, severance pay, bonuses and special payments. When you file your biweekly continued claims for benefits, you must report all wages earned during the week in which the work was performed regardless of whether you were paid during that week.
