    I am getting 24 hours a week of work due to lack of work.  Can I collect unemployment for the rest?

    I have been working for PDS Incorporated for 4 years full time, now I am not getting enough hours.  Will I be able to collect unemployment for the rest of the hours?  How will that work?

    It will depend on the state where you live.  If you live in the state of Washington, you can collect a portion of your unemployment if you are currently working.  There is a deduction from your benefits based on how much you earn.  There is a chart for it on accesswashington.  You will have to go to your own state and see what the rules are.

    You need to check with your state's dept of labor.

    Typically, if you are making more with your reduced hours than your benefit determination, then you probably wouldn't be eligible.

    Definitely contact the DOL for the real scoop.
