Just wondering if anyone knows enough to maybe answer this: Since my UI benefits in a neighboring state will run out real soon (I've looked very hard for full time work though and will look even harder in the coming weeks thanks to that), I can collect UI benefits in OR, since that is where my job was. However, I possibly made, over the period that they says that they are going to use for wages, not even 6K, pretty sad. What % of your wages do they normally use to determine a weekly benefits amount? When I had my claim in another state, they gave me maximum weekly benefits since I made enough money, guessing 30K during the period. This states formula may be different from OR's.
Also, I (fraud was not determined) was overpaid by the neighboring state. Can they go to OR (or will OR on their own) withhold part of my UI benefits because I got overpaid through another, not their, state? I learned that for all partical purposes, my states UI bennies ran out this week, since they are going to take all of my last check and apply it towards an overpayment.
Of course, I would much, much rather be working full time, but I want some idea of what I have too look forward to under OR UI benefits. They will not tell you this information in advance. Thanks

If you go to oregon.gov and click on unemployment, you can answer some questions and it will estimate your weekly benefit amount. It's usually about 2/3rds of your income. You can also file for unemployment online instead of having to go in person to the unemployment office. You also have the option of having them take federal taxes out of your weekly check(so you don't have to pay when you file your tax returns) and you can have it direct deposited. I can't answer your other questions, but I hope this helps.

From what i know about unemployment, you have to keep looking and be able to except any and all work, even if you are going to school. If you keep doing that you should be fine.

I experienced this situation. You have to prove you are willing and able to look for work and will take a reasonable job offer. I was going to school but still turned in my job seeking activities for the week. I told the unemployment people if I got a job I would switch to evening classes.

They accepted that. The point is, you have to show them you are still looking for work even though you are attending school. They won't automatically cut off your benefits because you are going to school but they may if you are not showing an effort to find work.

I am a lot more experienced with Oregon UI than I want to be. But these questions are really specific and need an answer from someone from the unemployment, I mean employment, department.

Attending college will not necessarily disqualify you, but you have to be available to work "normal" hours. For specific answers for your claim (or anybody's), a phone call to OED is the only way, a lot of times. There's no way around that for a lot of things. I hated being on hold for a half hour and then finding out I needed to talk to someone else, who wasn't available then. Allow time for it, and that is the most direct way to get things answered for sure. It was a PITA.
