How much money can I make while I'm on unemployment in NM, without being penalized on my weekly dispersion?
Someone found it in the handbook for me - 20% of my weekly dispersion.

Look in your benefits booklet. In Michigan it states that for every $100.00 you make, $50.00 would be subtracted from your unemployment check. In other words, if you make $250.00 a week in wages, then $100.00 would be subtracted from your unemployment check for that week. But you better call them on this to be sure. Some states don't penalize you!!Source(s): Someone who has been collecting unemployment since June 2008.
