CLICK HERE to Estimate your weekly benefit amount now and after the change of quarter on April 5, 2020.

Your weekly benefit amount is calculated by dividing the wages in the highest quarter of your base period by 21. However, your weekly benefit amount (WBA) cannot be more than the maximum weekly benefit amount, which is determined each year by law. Click here to view the maximum weekly benefit amount.

The minimum weekly benefit amount is set by law at $5 a week.

Your claim is good for one year from the effective date of the claim; however, you can be paid for only 26 weeks of total unemployment during the one-year period that your claim is effective.

The benefit estimator can be used as a quick reference for determining your approximate potential benefit amount.  This is only an estimate based on information you are providing.  It may differ from your actual benefit amount.
