Continued benefits while you work

Produced by Greater Boston Legal Services
Reviewed January 19, 2021

If you work while you are getting UI or PUA, you must tell DUA what you earn each week.

  • You can earn up to 33% of your weekly benefit amount (WBA) and your earnings will not reduce your benefit.
  • If you earn more than 33%, your earnings will reduce your WBA dollar for dollar.
  • If you earn 133% or more of your WBA, you are no longer eligible.

Your benefits

  • Depends on your earnings.
  • If you get partial benefits, your benefits will last for a longer period of time.
