File your claim once. List your pay history. The Department of Labor will calculate your pay rate based on your base or alternate base periods.

If you worked for two employers at the same time and lost both jobs at the same time then your compensation rate will be based on income from both. Of course if you continue to earn some money from any job you MUST disclose that to avoid any type of misrepresentation, fraud, or penalties which are assessed when appropriate.
