Working and Receiving Benefits
A person is “unemployed” per unemployment insurance law when working less than full-time and earning less than their weekly benefit amount. A person may earn up to 10 times Oregon’s minimum wage or one-third of the weekly benefit amount (whichever is greater) before benefits are deducted dollar for dollar from the weekly benefit amount. When working full time or earning more than the weekly benefit amount, the individual is not “unemployed” and not eligible for benefits.
