To receive partial benefits, you must establish monetary eligibility and you must be able to work and available for work as defined by law.

The number of hours you are working or worked during a week must be less than the number of hours customarily considered full-time for that job and/or employer. The reason for working less than full-time must be lack of work or because the job is part-time by choice of the employer.

Partial Unemployment compensation benefits payments will be figured by taking two-thirds of your gross earnings for the week claimed and deducting that amount from your Weekly Benefit Rate.

Be patient as you wait for your first check.  Federal stands say that a check is timely if it is mailed within 21 days of the completion of the first week.  After you receive that check, further checks will arrive every two weeks as long as you certify your claim on your assigned day.
