She also worked at Kay’s jewelry part time. She quit Kay’s jewelry to receive the unemployment benefits for her weekly payment $355+600=955 she dose pay $100 dollars a week for insurance which she gets $855+$3500 dollars every month, that means she gets $7000or$8000 a month and she is still getting $315 dollars + her full time teacher’s pay 315 every week. She slipped through the cracks and she has not been caught. I was told if you are employed full time, you could not get unemployment benefits.
