Laid off from full time job (80k per year)of 26 years, still have part time job (of 6 months) making (19k per year), can you collect unemployment in florida?



Hi James,

I estimate that you are earning about $365 dollars a week from your part-time job.

If this is about right...You can open a claim and they of course would find you eligible for the max weekly benefit amount (was $275, but due to stimulus probably closer to $300 now), but Florida only disregards 8 times the federal minimum wage when calculating partial UI. I believe that presently that amount is 52.80.

You wouldn't get anything if your earnings minus 52.80 exceed your weekly WBA.
