IF YOU WORK PART OF A WEEK: You must report all wages earned for any week in which you claim benefits. If you worked less than full time and your gross wages are less than your weekly benefit rate, you should qualify for a partial benefit payment as well as a partial earnings incentive. LAG BENEFITS: If you return to work in the middle of a work week, you may also be paid a lag payment. The lag payment would be 1/5th of your benefit rate for each work day preceding your return to work date.
