Can I Work Part Time And Still Receive Benefits?

If you receive or will receive wages for less than full time work, your Weekly Benefit Amount will be reduced by a part of those wages for each week to which the wages apply. In calculating the amount of partial unemployment benefits due you for a week if you are working part­time, add 30% to your Weekly Benefit Amount and subtract the gross amount of the wages you earned from that figure. If your earned wages for a week are more than your weekly amount plus 30%, you cannot be paid benefits for that week.
