  • Learn how to calculate your weekly benefits rate

    Your weekly benefit rate is the money you get if you qualify for unemployment compensation. Your rate depends on the income you received in your base year. A base year includes the first four quarters (or 12 months) of your last five quarters from the date you applied for unemployment. To illustrate, if you filed your claim in the months of October, November or December 2010 (the fourth quarter of the year) your base year started on July 1st 2009 and finishes on June 30th, 2010. How much you earned in your base year (or the first 12 months of the last 15) determines how much (if anything) you get in your unemployment compensation checks. Let us do the math.

    Step 1. Calculate the total income you earned in your base period. You need to add your gross wages, not your take home money. Your gross wages includes what you pay towards social security, tax and health insurance.

    Step 2. Work out how much you got in each of the four quarters in your base period and identify which is your high earning quarter. Your high earning quarter will decide how much you will receive in your check. Remember each quarter has three months: January to March, April to June, July to September and October to December.

    Now you are ready to calculate your benefits rate. To even qualify for unemployment benefits you must have earned $1,320 throughout the benefits year, $800 of which you must have earned in one quarter. Your weekly benefits are divided into tiers depending on how much you earned in your highest earning quarter. The table below details the tier system. Let us explain how the table works.

    The key columns you need to look at are A, C and D (or E if you only qualify for 15 weeks unemployment benefits). To be eligible for unemployment at the level set by your highest earning quarter you must have at least earned the income specified in column 3 during your entire base period.

    To qualify for the maximum $564 you must have earned at least 20 percent of your qualifying income for that tier ($4,500) in other another quarter (or quarters) besides your high earning quarter. For instance, even if you earned $15,000 in your high-earning quarter, you must still have earned $4,500 during the rest of the year.
