Can I Work Part Time And Still Receive Benefits?
Claimants are encouraged to accept parttime work while looking for permanent, fulltime employment. The earnings allowance is the maximum amount a claimant may earn in a compensable week before the weekly benefit amount is reduced. It is computed by dividing the claimant's high quarter wages by 13, multiplying this result by ten percent, and rounding any amount which is not a whole dollar down to the next lower whole dollar. Earnings over this amount are deducted dollar for dollar from weekly benefits. Ineligible amount is determined by adding the claimant's earning allowance to the claimant's weekly benefit amount. If, in a given week, the earnings reported by the claimant equal or exceed the ineligible amount, then the claimant cannot receive any unemployment benefits for that week.
