Underemployment benefits

By Terry Savage on June 19, 2020 | Wild Card

I’m drawing benefits from being a furlowed employee, if I’m called back to working for part-time hours am I still allowed to earn one-half of my weekly benefit amount and still draw full unemployment benefits payments?

It depends on the amount you earn. When you certify you must put in the amount you earned, and that will determine your benefits. Warning: It is VERY likely that you will earn far less than you would receive in benefits, considering the extra $600 federal benefit that ends July 31st.
