    I was laid off and currently receiving unemployment. What happens if I get a part time job? How will that affect the unemployment I am receiving. I am currently receiving the max amount.

    In the UK, you are allowed to work for up to 16 hours per week without it affecting your unemployment benefit.

    Depends on the state and the county. I am an airline wonk too and have been laid off like 3 times in ten years lol (wish i was kidding). If you are in SFO you are lucky, because California is, or was, pretty lenient on that when I was based there.

    As a rule whatever is earned is deducted from the amount you are getting from unemployment.

    Your best bet would be to try to get a job under the table. (with me sitting at said table) :wink::biggrin1: We can put some "laid" into your lay off.

    That's how it worked for me. In fact, I got more money each week if I worked part time because the unemployment supplemented my part-time job up to 125% of the amount I would've been getting on unemployment alone.
