Unemployment in Illinois

Unemployment in Illinois
Okay if you are receiving unemployment and then you work (babysitting) and earned just about 10-15% of your benefit amount... and you certify and submit that amount that you've earned. Will they deduct what you have earned from your unemployment benefit-

Example: Unemply benefit amount~ $350 - earned $50... will they deduct that $50 earned?

  • Um... yes.. that's why they want you to claim it. Stop claiming it and start babysitting more.

  • I believe that you can earn up to $100 a week without losing any of your benefits. After that, they take away a dollar for every dollar that you earn.

    Please don't listen to the anonynasties who think that cheating is acceptable.

  • Check your states requirements. Some states do not want you to earn anything without it being deducted from UC. IL happens to be very particular and by the book. Before you earn any money be sure it will not jeopordize your UC benefits.
