Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.

As long as you don't receive more than your benefit amount, you would still be eligible to receive some amount in unemployment benefits while working at your part-time job.

However, if you make more than your weekly benefit amount, you would lose your existing benefits.

If my part time jobs pays 160.00 per week. Does that mean $160. is deducted from my 186.00 per week I'm receiving?
Expert:  Joseph replied 5 years ago.
No, it wouldn't be deducted directly, but your unemployment benefits will be partially reduced.
