How can I answer this question (How many hours you worked per week) for my insurance application, if I worked on call, as an interpreter? Sometimes I had an assignment for 2 hours once a week, sometimes more, sometimes I didn't have on call assignment at all during a month.

  • Did you ask the insurance company? I don't think there is any way someone here could possibly know the answer to that. – JohnFx Aug 26 '15 at 4:43
  • @JohnFx It's unemployment insurance. Nobody picks up the phone. – Nick Bolsh Aug 26 '15 at 4:45
  • Location may be required for this. If you are an independent contractor the laws of your jurisdiction may limit your eligibility for unemployment insurance. – mhoran_psprep Aug 26 '15 at 10:05

Average it out and give the most accurate answer you can.

    +1 - right, but I believe the most important thing is to disclose the amount of money earned. As I recall, the unemployment benefit is reduced based on earnings. But not eliminated for relative small amounts. They encourage you to work. – JoeTaxpayer Aug 26 '15 at 12:03
