If I report freelance income for two consecutive 2-week pay periods (4 weeks) and this income exceeds my UI income I think I get dropped from UI, is that correct?
Elliot,Thank you very much for your reply."If I report freelance income for two consecutive 2-week pay periods (4 weeks) and this income exceeds my UI income I think I get dropped from UI, is that correct?"This is actually incorrect. You can always go back to collecting benefits provided that you can demonstrate to the EDD's satisfaction that you are able and available to accept work and actively seeking new work. No disqualification will result if you exceed your benefits alottment in income for two or more consecutive weeks.Again, please feel free to let me know if you have any further concerns.
