Nevada Unemployment Rules

In order to receive unemployment benefits in Nevada you must follow these rules:

1. You must be able to work, and are not disabled.
2. You must be actively looking for a job, and keeping a record of your job search.
3. You must file a weekly certification.
4. You must not make more than your weekly wage allowance. In some cases, you will be able to work while collecting unemployment - but only so much per week. Make sure when you apply for unemployment that you are very clear about how much you are able to earn each week. Your unemployment counselor will be able to tell you how much this is.

As long as you follow these Nevada unemployment rules, you will continue to receive your unemployment benefits.

Am I eligible for unemployment if I worked for a non-profit Christian school? Employees all signed a mandatory acknowlegement before starting work.

2 years ago i took an early retirement. i returned to work about 9 months ago in a different field so i am still collecting my pension. it is from a union not social security. the trade i am now in has a couple of down months a year. when it comes time to file and i let unemployment know about my pension, (as required by law), will i still get my unemployment or is there some kind of penalty. does anyone know how it works?

1. I am on social security disability for autism. I am able to work part time and currently working part time but I am concerned my employment will end soon. If it does, how will ssda affect my unemployment? Does quit/fired/laid off matter?
