    I got my last check and it included accrued vacation days pay. Do I include that as income and how do I go about that?

    When you called the TWC and asked this question, what did they say?

    You can bring up the TWC website & see if you can find your answer or just call them as suggested.

    The employer should report it. They will receive a questionnaire asking that question.

    Reporting Work & Earnings
    When making a payment request, claimants must report hours worked and gross earnings (before deductions) from any full-time, part-time or temporary work; net profit from self-employment; vacation or holiday pay; and commissions. Those earnings must be reported even though the claimant may not have yet received payment. There are no exceptions. TWC computes how much a claimant can earn before we deduct those earnings from their weekly benefit amount plus 25%. Claimants who earn more than their weekly benefit amount plus 25% cannot receive benefits for that week.
