Can I Work Part Time And Still Receive Benefits?
Yes, but you will need to report your gross earnings each week and continue to search for other suitable employment. Gross earnings are deducted in the following way:
- If your total gross earnings are equal to or greater than your weekly benefit amount for any week you claim, no benefits are paid for that week.
- If your total gross earnings are less than your weekly benefit amount for any week you claim, then the first $50 or 25 percent of your total earnings, whichever is more, is not deducted from your weekly benefit amount. The remainder of your earnings is deducted 100 percent.
You are not eligible for benefits if you work for an employer or in selfemployment 32 hours or more in a week even if your gross weekly earnings are less than your weekly benefit amount.
