How is the amount of my benefits determined?
When you file an application, your work history will be reviewed to determine if you have earned enough wages to qualify.
To qualify for benefits you must have been paid wages from insured employment in at least two quarters with the total of your wages being at least 30 times your WBA. Insured work is work performed for employers who are required to pay unemployment insurance tax on your wages.
We determine both your weekly benefit amount (WBA) and your total benefit amount (TBA) based on the wages you earned during your base period.
