Earning wages while collecting unemployment

You may earn the greater of $50 or 25 percent of your weekly benefit amount without reducing your weekly benefits. For example, if you are receiving the maximum amount of $275 each week, you may earn 25 percent of $275, which is $68.75, and still receive the full $275. If you are receiving $175 a week, you may earn up to $50 without your weekly benefit being reduced, as 25 percent of $175 is $43.75.

Earnings are reported during weekly certification. Wages are reportable the week in which they are earned, regardless of when they are paid.
