Q) How is the amount of unemployment per check determined.
A) Unemployment benefit payments vary depending on which in which you live. The amount you are able to receive will depend on your weekly earnings you got prior to being laid off. You unemployment benefit is usually paid for a maximum of 26 weeks in most states.
Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to calculate how much money you’ll receive through unemployment benefits or for how long you’ll be able to collect those benefits unless your state has an online unemployment calculator. Each state has a different rate, and benefits vary based on your earnings record and the date you became unemployed.
