Does anyone know how filing unemployment in NJ works for self employed? specifically it asks when was my last day of work? is that the last time i got paid? or the last time i tried to make  a deal? (which is always obviously) . Do i say i am currently employed and low in hours of work or is it better to say unemployed? ty
They have a PDF explaining how to fill it out on their site, added last night

I was told that some people are making more money unemployed than working.
That seems problematic. Unemployed workers will not want to go back to work.
Workers will want to become unemployed.
But it is what it is. Happy that it helps those who need it.
My wife has this dilemma right now. The agency she works (worked?) for layed everyone off so they can accept unemployment. Now they set up a system to work remotely and wants to rehire them to do it. She's getting more through unemployment with the bonus and we have a toddler at home. On the other hand, the agency might not want to rehire her after this is over if she refuses to do remote therapy. And the child has a need to be filled.

Disclaimer: I am asking daas torah for a real answer, but i thought it would make an interesting discussion.

Will she be working full hours/salary?

I'd suggest volunteer til 7/31, and request a 'bonus' of deferred wages payable 8/1.

Don't you need to report it to the DOL if you do any work, even volunteer work?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Generally volunteer work is allowed when unemployed and does not have to be reported.

Btw this is an issue for a whole 'nother reason. You can't volunteer somewhere with the promise of reverting to a paid position.

Quote
In certain instances, you may collect unemployment benefits while you do volunteer work.  You must meet all of these conditions: The volunteer work is for a charitable, religious or cultural organization

AND
You do not receive payment in any form for your volunteer work
(Example: if you "volunteer" at a school in exchange for tuition abatement or scholarship, we do not consider this true volunteer work. This work would affect your eligibility for unemployment benefits.)
AND
The volunteer work is not a precondition to being hired or rehired into a paid position
(Example: if you volunteer while on a lay-off from a social services agency that is between budgets or grants, we do not consider this true volunteer work. This work would affect your eligibility for unemployment benefits.)
AND
Your volunteer duties do not interfere with your ability to search for work
AND
Do not affect or limit the number of days and hours you are willing to work

I bolded some of the things from the link you posted that say the opposite of
Generally volunteer work is allowed when unemployed

I tried to sign up for unemployment in NYS today.
To begin you need to st up an account.
I did the first steps entering my social ,creating a  user name.Next step is to get an email from the state and click on link to activate.When I get the activation link it tells me that the link has expired and i need to re-register, though i registered two minutes earlier.Upon reregistering i had a repeat. Has anybody had the same issue?
Try using Internet Explorer ::)

Anyone in New Jersey that got unemployment plus the $600  from the unemployment stimulus boost? I received regular unemployment but not the $600.
Update- I received the $600 x 2 for the week starting March 29

I donít follow. You got $600 x2 for two applicants? Or for two weeks?

And this you just got now? Itís been 3.5 weeks since 3/29...

Sorry, it was for two weeks and yes I got the week of March 29th and the week after. It was  a week after I got my regular unemployment.
