How much are you entitled to Receive?
To determine your weekly benefit amount, you must divide your total earnings in the 12 months before the last quarter you worked by 52, and then multiply the total by 0.47. For example, if you earned $30,000 in the 12 months before the last quarter you worked; $30,000 ÷ 52 = $576.92 x 0.47 = $271 weekly benefit total. The weekly benefit amount should be rounded to the next whole dollar amount and will not go over $390. You should receive your initial unemployment payment within three weeks if there are no issues with your claim.
