How Do Earnings Affect My Benefits?

You are allowed to earn 50% of your weekly benefit amount without any deduction. Any earnings over 50% are deducted. If your benefit amount is $100.00, you are allowed to earn $50 gross (wages before deductions) with no deduction of your unemployment insurance benefit; anything over $50 is deducted dollar for dollar.
