What will my Weekly Benefit Amount be?

If you are eligible for regular unemployment benefits, weekly benefit amounts for claims effective before July 1, 2021 will be between $125 and $503 per week. For claims filed on or after July 1, 2021, weekly benefit amounts will be between $135 and $540 per week.
