Do I work my reduced hours first, then try to claim partial UI ?

My new G.M. reduced my hours to 16.5hrs. I had been working between 26.5-28 hours weekly for the past 1 1/2yrs+. Everyone else at this particular store is under 40y.o. I'am 45y.o. and a Fl. resident. Any help or guidance will be helpful. Thank you.

You can try to file a claim when you start working the reduced schedule.

But you need to keep in mind that FL does not have a part-time worker provision .. so they may also deny you any benefits you "might" be entitled to if you are not looking for and available for full-time work.
