Does anyone know how temping works with your UE benefits. If I worked 3 temp jobs in a week and it did not equal my UE amount - do I get the balance. Do I stop getting UE if I Temp?

The formula for each state varies, but generally you would receive at least the difference in UEC. If your earnings exceed your UEC, as a rule no benefit would be payable.

What state are you in? Check out the website for your state DOL. Most likely you will find your answer.

It may differ from state to state, however, here in NC you have a "weekly earnings allowance". This is the amount you can earn (gross) per week before your weekly benefit is reduced. For example, my weekly earnings allowance is $113.17. If I earn $100 (and remember you should report it) then my weekly benefit will not be reduced. If I earn $200, then my weekly benefit will be reduced by the difference between $200 and $113.17, which equals $86.83 (I hope my math is correct!) And if I earn $1000 (ha!) then I would not receive my weekly benefit of $505 at all.

You have to report gross, not net, and it must be what you earned that week, even if you don't get paid until the next week.

The good thing about this is, it "stretches out" your benefits. Another example, I had a part-time temp job last Nov, Dec, Jan. I had only 14 weeks worth of benefits, but because I reported my earnings I stretched out those unemployment benefits through about 28 weeks.

Hope this helps.

From the NJ DOL website, here is the formula used to apply your part-time income toward your UI benefit payment:
Quote:
Whether you are working less than full-time or part-time, you must report your weekly gross wages (including tips) when you claim your benefits. Please note that even if pre-existing part-time employment is not used to calculate your monetary, you must declare all earnings for each week of benefits that you claim. Wages must be reported for the week in which they are earned, not when they are paid.


The wages you report will be subtracted from your Partial Benefit Rate. The Partial Benefit Rate is 20% higher than your weekly benefit rate. You cannot be paid more than your weekly benefit rate.

For example, if your weekly benefit rate is $200, your Partial Benefit Rate is $240 (20% higher than $200). If you earn $50 during a week, you would receive $190 in unemployment benefits ($240 - $50 = $190).

I worked at a temp position for the county last year (they wanted to hire me but then there was a hiring freeze). Anyway, they deducted a certain amount as abcornwell stated, and gave me the difference. I think it was $100 or so. What it did was extend my eligiblity for UI, so it was a very good thing. Just keep in mind that you have to report when you work, because your employer certainly does.

Has anyone cleared up if the rule remains the same on temping/part-time work on the effects at your Benefit Year End?

Been changed so you are not penalized. HR4213. Read Section 3.

Some of you need to be aware when you take a temp job the temp agencies are known for trying to fight unemployment benefits when you try and get back on unemployment.

It is a Catch 22, someone wants to get off UE and work, then they take a temp job which ends after 3 months. They file again and the temp agency will say they were let go for performance reasons or have turned down other assignments.

Now some savvy UE employees are aware of how these temp agencies operate but others aren't.
