If you are denied at Reconsideration, then speak with your rep about it. Without knowing the amounts reported earned in 2015, it's impossible to say if it needs to be addressed or not. If the adjudicator has questions s/he will ask you. You would have received a W2 for both, correct? Have you asked wife if she has copies?
How exactly did this come up, anyway?
I think i remember what happened now. I stopped working 11/14, but i was on SDI for a year. So they gave me my State service retirement award that has a retirement date of 12/1/15. Even though i was on SDI, I was still considered an employee. I think the State reported that i earned around $5,000.00 in 2015. So, i guess i don't know specifically what the 5k was for. I guess i can just tell them it was a payout for vacation or such. I didn't remember I had a little one day job at at Doggy Daycare center, i worked 4hours.
I will see if my wife can dig out the W-2. Thanks for your comments, and Helper too! I have bad memory problems, so i cam trying to get stuff ready in advance. I pray for a miracle that i am approved at the initial stage, but i am probably deluding myself. But, you never know, miracles do happen.
