Can I continue recieving unemployement if I just got a part time job 20-25 hour a week? by Julie (Florida) I live in Florida and receive $243.00 per week, and I got a part time job that offers only 20-25 hours per week. Would I be still eligible for unemployment benefits. Hi Julie, It depends on how much you would gross working 20-25 hours a week in the part-time job. It is possible that you may still be able to collect a partial benefit amount, but it does depend on the earnings in any particular week.
