How much unemployment can I receive each week?

In Michigan, the standard maximum amount is $362.00.  Please note - the amount that you will actually qualify for depends on several factors including how much money you previously earned. But in addition to the state unemployment benefit, under the new federal program, workers will receive an additional $600.00. This means that a worker could receive up to $962.00 per week before tax deductions. This $600.00 payment is expected to last four months. Be sure to check your monetary determination for information concerning the exact amount you can expect to receive.
