null Can I work part time and receive benefits?
You may receive some benefits for a week if you work less than full time and earn less than your weekly benefit amount.
You may earn up to 25 percent of your weekly benefit amount (WBA) without a reduction to your unemployment benefits. Any earnings over 25 percent of your WBA will be deducted from your unemployment benefits on a dollar-for-dollar basis.
You must report your gross wages (wages before deductions) from any employment on your weekly certifications (claims). This includes any wages received as a Reservist for weekend drill and annual training participation.
