Q) I am currently on unemployment. It was calculated on $10,000 per month previous income. 2 Questions. First, I have a company that might want me to work 1 week per month for $3000. How would I claim unemployment for the other 3 weeks? Second, if this stopped in a few months, would my unemployment be calculated on the $3000 or the $10,000 amount?
A) When on weekly unemployment benefits you are required to certify each weak in order to claim benefits. Be sure to state earnings for the week worked, then continue to claim benefits for the week you are out of work. Please note that if your earn $3000 for one week, depending on your state entitlement you may out earn your allotted benefits for the following week; or weeks.
