Can I get unemployment benefits if start a new job?

Texas Attorney at Law

As a general rule once you start working you cannot receive unemployment benefits. The best policy is to call unemployment and let them know about your situation. It is very dangerous to work and to continue to receive unemployment benefits. Call unemployment and let them know what is going on with your employment. Be honest and open with them. If you do not they will come back after you for benefits that you were overpaid and in some cases it could be a crime so be very careful and just be honest and forthright with unemployment.
