Can you go to jail if you collect unemployment and have a full time job at the same time?
There is usually no jail time, however it is considered fraud. There are serious consequences. I worked for the unemployment and all of your wages are reported to the state. They show up on a quarterly basis, so when you are collecting and working, they may not be aware of it, however when those wages are posted they will come after you. You will have to pay it back before being eligible for benefits in the future and they can disqualify you for the state maximum period of time in the future. Also, most employers HR office send information to the unemployment office when you are offered a job.

No, because your working you div.
Yes you can. They average out your past 3 months of work hours. In your case 40. So if your working lets say 20hours a week now you will get paid the difference. But not the f…ull difference. So say you make 10$ a hour 400$ a week. Work 20 hours at 200$ you might get about 160 from unemployment
Only if you don't mind committing a crime.
It is generally legal to receive both disability and unemployment benefits if you meet the qualifications for both programs. However, if you collect unemployment benefits when… you're physically incapable of working, or disability benefits when you're physically capable of working above Social Security SGA levels ($1,000 per month, average; $1,640, if blind), you would be committing fraud and could possible receive a jail or prison sentence. You would definitely be required to repay any benefits you received for which you were not legally eligible. For more information, see Related Questions, below.
Yes, but check the Related Link below for particulars.
It is unlikely because to qualify, a student must be ready, willing, and able to start immediately on a full time job that he must have been seeking. A student generally does …not have the flexibility to convince the unemployment office he can do that.
If you are working then you are not unemployed. However, In the UK, Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA) is payable if you are working less than 16 hours a week and actively seeking fu…ll time work.
If you are working full time with an employer, you would not meet the definition of an unemployed worker. Therefore, you would not be eligible for benefits.
It doesn't sound likely. If the job you didn't lose is full time, where is the unemployed issue?
You shouldn't be concerned because they are 2 different programs designed to help the unemployed and low income, both are needed in this case, if they qualify for them individ…ually.
Can you collect unemployment if you quit your part time job that you were collecting partial unemployment with for a full time job and then are fired?
There are too many variables in your question for a definitive answer. Your state, work history for the full time job, benefits remaining for the older part time job, qualific…ations for receiving benefits, etc.
Yes. In many states, if the work hours are reduced to less than originally agreed upon, the state will allow partial unemployment benefits if the earnings are less than the be…nefits being paid. Check with your own state's employment security office for clarification.
In State Laws
Committing fraud against the government is a criminal offense, and you could be charged with (depending on the state) a felony offense (i.e.: defrauding the government).
You can stay on unemployment; but you have to claim the money you earn from your temporary job. In most places, this probably does not extend the period of coverage of your un…employment insurance. Since the exact rules are different from state to state, you should ask your local unemployment office for a definitive answer.
No. Unemployment is insurance against loss of income from total lack of employment. If you have a full-time job, you're not eligible to collect unemployment.
I would imagine the answer would be no as you would still be employed and you can't be both unemployed and employed.
