Collecting unemployment benefit while working 40 hours a week?

A friend has two jobs. One is full time 40 hours a week which she is still working.

The other job is part time and closed because of the CovID-19. She is collecting unemployment plus the supplement which comes out to 1500.00 every two weeks.

The 1500.00 biweekly is probably more than she makes at her full time job.

    She is collecting fraudulently. When she submits her claim each week or every other week, one of the questions is "did you work during the period, how many days, and how much did you make".

    Your friend is either lying to you (not so bad) or lying to UI.

    If she is lying to UI, when she is caught she will owe the money back, likely be disallowed from collecting UI for 3-10 and jail time is a potential but unlikely.

    She shouldn't be. She could get caught and get in a lot of trouble.
