Bronx, NY asked in Employment Law for New York

Q: Will I still be elegible for the extra $600 unemployment assistance if I work 4 days a week?

I’ve been told that if I work 4 days and makes less than $504 I am elegible for the $600 but not the regular unemployment. I am able to cut my days down to 3 if that allows me to still file.

A: If you earn more than $504 per week or work more than 3 days per week, even 5 minutes on the 4th day, you will not qualify in New York. You must qualify for some partial benefits in New York unless you have no other income from any other source, in which case you may qualify for pandemic alone. But that scenario is not you.

Work 3 days max. Earn less than $504 weekly such that you qualify for some partial NY unemployment benefits and you should recover the pandemic which ends July 26, the last full week in July of this year.
