UE and freelance work Hello, I am currently receiving emergency unemployment benefits (have exhasuted the standard benefits). I have the oppurtunity to pick up a freelance job for a short time. I recently developed an S corporation, with the hopes of having my own business (designer). If I get this job, I would be paid once a month (for about 3 months). When I would claim benefits that week, I would enter that I received more than $405 that week, and I was self-employed. However, the next week I would resume collecting my benefits. Would this freelance job jepordize my emergency benefits? I want to be on the up & up, and be truthful, as I appreciate the unemployment extentions, but cannot risk losing them. Thanks.

I never Admit or mention my freelance work. Especially as long as I'm getting it under the table or left to deal with the taxes on my own. The only time I DO pay taxes on my freelance work is when it's a large amount that someone would notice like several thousand dollars. Basiy if they dont give me a W4 for it, I dont bother. Most places don't.

    Under the table? So you freelance interviewing people, don't pay taxes and question other people's ethics? What the fuck is wrong with people today? Jesus H. tap dancing Christ!

    UE and freelance work I agree! I WANT to be truthful and intend on paying all taxes required. I claim taxes on my UE, and do not take it for granted. I feel lucky to have it, as it has kept me afloat during this horrible economy. I intend on taking this freelance job, I just want to know if this will affect my being able to claim weekly benefits when I do not receive $ for that week.

    Agreed with Andii If it's under the table freelance, it's under the table for a "the man" don't see it. And again, as Andii said, unless it is a large amount...

    not following for sure here.... but if you get paid once a month you still need to report what you make 'weekly' out of that monthly amount based on the exact hours you work each week (even IF you don't get paid in that week.) So, if you don't work as much in one week you should still get UI. Most states use the 25% factor. You can make up to 25% of your weekly UI rate without it being deducted from your weekly UI payment. Anything over that will be deducted dollar for dollar from your UI. Example: You make $400 a week on UI. You make $200 working during a week. 25% of $400 is $100. You would get $100 free and clear from working however, the other $100 would be deducted from your weekly UI payment. So your weekly UI payment would be $400. Even though it is the same amount as you would normally take home for UI, it will bank money in your UI in case you need it for future. I know there are some catches with UI in some states if you are working a 1099 position and from what you have described, you would be doing just that. Because 1099 jobs do not pay UI insurance so you won't build on your UI bank that way. You will only save from having additional money deducted from your current UI bank from past employment/employers by working p/t, temp or 1099, etc jobs. You need to either check your state's UI site or them and ask.
