    FAQ
      Jobless Worker
    How many weeks can I collect unemployment?
     
    Answer:
    To calculate the number of weeks of entitlement,

    1. Multiply your total base period wages by 40% (0.4)

    2. Divide the result in step 1 by your Weekly Benefit Amount

    3. Round down to the nearest half-week. The result is the number of weeks you may receive benefits. The maximum is 20 weeks and the minimum is 14 weeks, except for benefits based on family employment, in which case benefits are limited to 7 weeks.
