Other income: Will other income reduce my benefits?

Vacation, holiday and W.A.R.N. pay reduce your weekly benefit amount (WBA) in the same way as wages.

Severance, termination pay or Social Security payments do not reduce your WBA. Pensions may reduce your unemployment benefits.

Examples of pensions that may reduce your benefits are military retirement (including disability), union pension, private employer pension, federal civilian pension, and state, county, or city pension. Tell your claims representative if you are receiving a pension. If it affects your benefits, you will be notified.
