If it works the way it does here in NC (and I think it should if you're
in the US, because it's a Federal regulation), there's a certain dollar
amount you can earn in any one week without reducing your benefit for
that week. Your "account" has a certain dollar value - so many weeks at
whatever your weekly benefit.
The money withheld from this week's benefit should still be in the
account, and should extend your benefit to another partial week.
When I was last drawing unemployment, any week I found partial work and
the paycheck exceeded the earnings limit by any significant amount, I
just didn't file for that week.
Again, if it works the way it does here, you don't have to take the
benefits sequentially, a claim for benefits runs for a whole year from
the date the claim is opened, so if you find a week's work you don't
lose your benefit.
It's intended to encourage you to accept work even if it's only for a
Doing that, I managed to eke out 26 weeks of benefits to cover a full year.
