Question :
How much can I make before it will affect my Unemployment Insurance?
Answer :
If your gross earnings equal or exceed your weekly benefit amount plus $15.00, no unemployment payment will be made for the week. You must report your gross earnings. You can earn up to 25% of your weekly benefit amount before any deduction is made from your unemployment payment. Any earnings over 25% will be deducted dollar for dollar. This means you will be able to draw benefits over a longer period of time if you remain eligible.
