Figuring Partial Benefits
Partial benefits equal the difference between that part of your earnings which exceed 50 percent of your weekly benefit amount and your weekly benefit amount for total unemployment. If the partial benefit amount does not come to an even dollar, it is raised to the next higher dollar, provided it does not exceed your weekly benefit amount. For example:
If your weekly benefit amount (not including dependency allowance) is:
$110.00
50% of that amount is:
$55.00
If your earnings are:
$76.50
The amount which exceeds 50% of your weekly benefit amount is:
$21.50
The difference between your weekly benefit amount of $110.00,
and the amount of your earnings which exceeds 50% of your weekly benefit amount of $21.50,
gives you a partial benefit amount of
($110 - 21.50):
$88.50
Note: The full amount of holiday or vacation pay will be deducted from your weekly benefit amount. Quoted from ides website

You can work and make 1/2 of your unemployment and not lose your unemployment checks. It also helps because you are putting money back into the system.

What if I earn 450. Weekly on unemployment benefits and then get a 2 week job and earned $1800.00? I am reporting the earning to unemployment and understand I will not get a check or two for a month. When will I get an unemployment check? Do I have to reopen a claim?

You can't earn anything over your WBA. You can work part time but this will also decrease your WBA.
