Yes. You may file for unemployment. When you file your weekly request for payment, you will be asked to report your weekly earnings before taxes and other deductions. If your earnings are not excessive, you may receive a partial unemployment benefit. To calculate your partial benefit payment, visit labor.mo.gov/DES/Claims/partial_benefit. Misreporting or underreporting earnings to obtain additional funds under the regular unemployment program qualifies as fraud. If an individual obtains benefits through fraud, the individual is ineligible for any additional benefit payments, must pay back the benefits received, and is subject to criminal prosecution.
