unemployed_personQ) I’m currently receiving unemployment benefit but will be working on Feb 4th as a temp what do I need to do?

A) Congratulations on your new job! When you start working, you will need to report your earnings to the unemployment office. Generally, you will need to report your gross earnings (before taxes and other deductions) for each week that you work while still receiving unemployment benefits. You may be required to report your earnings online or by phone, depending on the rules in your state.

Your unemployment benefits will typically be reduced or eliminated based on how much you earn. However, it’s important to keep in mind that you may still be eligible for partial benefits if you work part-time or if your earnings are below a certain threshold.

Be sure to read the instructions provided by your state’s unemployment office for reporting earnings and maintaining your benefits while you work.

If you are receiving unemployment benefits and will be working soon, you will need to report your earnings to your state’s unemployment insurance agency. You can usually do this online, by phone, or by mail. When you report your earnings, you will need to provide the following information:

  • The name of your employer
  • Your job title
  • Your weekly earnings
  • The dates you worked

Once you have reported your earnings, your state’s unemployment insurance agency will determine whether you are still eligible for benefits. If you are still eligible, your benefits will be reduced based on your earnings. The amount of the reduction will depend on your state’s unemployment insurance laws.

If you are not sure how to report your earnings, you can contact your state’s unemployment insurance agency for assistance.

Here are some additional tips for working while receiving unemployment benefits:

  • Keep track of your earnings and hours worked. This will make it easier to report your earnings to your state’s unemployment insurance agency.
  • Be prepared to provide documentation of your earnings. This may include pay stubs, W-2 forms, or other documents from your employer.
  • If you have any questions about your eligibility for unemployment benefits, contact your state’s unemployment insurance agency.

Each time you file a weekly claim for benefits, you must report if you performed any work or earned any money during the week you are claiming. You must report the total amount earned before deductions. It must be for the week in which the work was performed even though you may not have been paid for the work at the time you file your weekly claim.
