You must make a continued and organized effort to look for work. A workforce center will assign you a number of contacts you must make each week.
You must keep a list of these efforts; we may request proof at any time up to two years after your benefit-year end date. We provide a work-search log sample for you to use.
For every job contact you must keep a verifiable list of:
We may conduct an audit of your claim at any time. You may be asked to provide your work-search log. If you are unable to produce the log with all requirements, you may not be eligible for benefits.
You must be willing to look for and accept suitable work. Various factors are considered when determining if work is suitable including, but not limited to, rate of pay, prior experience, and length of unemployment.
You do not need to call us to tell us that you found full-time work; simply stop requesting payments. Stop requesting payment your next regularly scheduled date after your first day of full-time work, not when you receive your first paycheck.
You are allowed to work part-time (less than 32 hours a week) while you are collecting unemployment benefits. We can pay you part of your benefits for a week when you work part-time, but you must have earned less than your weekly benefit amount.
The law states that you can earn up to 25 percent of your weekly benefit amount and still get your full unemployment payment. After that, we must reduce your unemployment payment by one dollar for each dollar you earn.
Keep track of your hours and earnings using our earnings log. You will need to report this information when you request payment. Additionally, you must report when you no longer work for an employer.
When we say that your claim has “shut down” we mean that CUBLine does not recognize you when you request payment. You must reopen your claim prior to requesting payment. You may reopen your claim here or contact the Customer Service Center.
Stop requesting payment your next regularly scheduled date after your first day of full-time work, not when you receive your first pay check.
