When to stop filing for unemployment once the shutdown is lifted Friday?
I work part time, was furloughed due to COVID-19, and I was able to receive benefits. However, when I return back to work this week and next week, what I earn will exceed what I'm eligible for what I receive from the state but not the $600 a week. Do you stop filing when you make more than what you receive from the state or the state + federal stimulus? Because if it's the second one, I'll file all summer long. The site is vague about this, and if anyone else in my shoes was wondering the same thing, hopefully it gets answered here.

If your working at old job you shouldn't be on "unemployment" anymore.

If you make more than $247 you will not qualify for either

The site also says as long as your hours are reduced, you can still file. These aren't normal unemployment operations.

John Doe receives $200 from the state, plus $540 with the stimulus for $740 a week. If John earns $250 a week, does he need to stop filing because it's over $200, or keep filing because it's under $740? That's the question that needs to be answered.

If I take the high road and sit with my thumb up my arse while anyone else plays the game and makes $5,000 out of all of this, I'm the loser here. You do what you need to do.

Doesn't it ask you questions when you check-in or report or whatever you call it every week?

Answer those honestly and if they still want to give you money, that's on them.

There are going to be a handful of people that do this and then when the benefits stop they are going to cry because all the good jobs have been taken. Mentality like this is exactly why so many get left behind. Then years later they call those of us that went to work for less "privileged" because we have been rewarded for our hard work.

Then you won’t be eligible for the 600 dollar fed money.

The site is vague about this,


The site couldn’t be clearer: you are ineligible for federal money if your state deems you to be ineligible for unemployment. In LA, that cut off is when you make more than your benefit amount.

You are trying to mix the two things out of hope.

As long as you qualify for $1 on the state claim you still qualify for the $600 federal handout. If you go back to work 40 hours in a week you will not qualify.

If you earn more than $247 per week from a job, you are ineligible for unemployment benefits in the state of LA.

The $600 extra from the feds, to receive you must be eligible for state benefits.

When you put the two together, you get the answer that you are ineligible for federal $600 if you make more than $247 a week. If you make $246 a week, you would get $1 in state benefits and $600 in federal benefits per week.
