It is best to check with your UE office. There is a partial benefit credit where you are allowed to collect while being paid up to a certain amount. Many states are different and with new laws being passed, I couldn't honestly answer you without checking with your UE office in your state.

I was told you can make up to $58 a week and still collect a full check. But that was told to me during my first 26 weeks. I am not sure about EB. I am just trying to figure EB out myself now, applied for it on Tuesday.

Be careful, I know you want to work, but if trying means your lights cut off, then ... Ask anonymously or they will investigate whether you have job etc. and you could lose benefits in a red tape nightmare.

Its hard to say, each state its different. I wouldn't take any chances, call and ask to be sure. You don't want it coming back to haunt you.

Be sure and let us know how you made out! Good luck.

minimoe, call and ask your UC office to explain the Partial Benefit Credit for you. That would be the easiest way to get your answers. Each state handles things differently and we would be remiss to explain our individual states' policy to you if it is different from yours.

Good luck and please do stay in touch and let us know how you make out.

Take the part-time job. Unemployment makes up the difference between your actual wage and your ue benefit. When you certify each week, you will be asked if you worked part-time and the GROSS wages you earned that week. You will need to calculate that yourself, so keep track of your hours. Be truthful when reporting these wages when you certify. In one of my former jobs, I received a lot of forms from the Unemployment Office asking for verification of reported wages for part-time employees who were still collecting UI.

Good Luck!
