Let's say I worked a few hours one day helping my brother move residency. He compensated me for my labor in cash. I plan to report this on my bi-weekly claim form, but what do I put down for Employer name and mailing Address, and does excepting this gig going to affect my Unemployment Benefit eligibility?

Thanks

If you want to do the right thing, then claim it. If the government pulls you off unemployment I assume that's ok with you because you played the game right.

I am not sure, honestly. I can tell you that temporary work that is temporary when you take it, will not cause your benefits to stop. But as it is your brother who compensated you in what was essentially a tip, I am not sure how you claim it or how they handle it...

PLease explain your knowledge, experience, or the UI law in which you refer to that will cause a claimant to lose his benefits by reporting wages earned through a temporary position....

I'm not sure as I believe they try to match reported earnings to an employers ID number, but I commend your honesty. It is refreshing.

I don't think what I did was work, i don't consider it work because I would of helped if I wasen't compensated I've done it before. Their was not an agreed upon wage, it was more like a gift than earning a wage.

Consider it a gift and be done with it. If you had a steady job which paid cash weekly/biweekly, then, yes, you should report it. A one-off of this kind - I wouldn't worry about it.

A gift is probably the better way to go...I kept thinking of it as a tip, but that would require employment in a certain place in order to get tips....

It would be illogical to claim that money on your unemployment report to the State. All that will do is cause your claim to be flagged. Just consider the money you were paid to be a gift or a tip and don't report it, and use it for something productive.
