How much will I receive if I am eligible for PUA?

Like state unemployment, this depends on your work history during the base period. The base period for PUA is the most recent tax year (i.e. 2019). We will use the same calculation as we use for state unemployment to determine your benefit amount. If you lack sufficient work or earnings but otherwise meet all requirements, then you will be eligible for the minimum. For claims filed before July 1, 2020, the minimum you can receive is $192 and the maximum you could receive is $488. For claims filed on or after July 1, 2020, the minimum you can received is $192 and the maximum you could receive is $503.
