Unemployment Insurance Weekly Benefit Amount (WBA) Calculator


Subject:
Jobs & Work , Job Loss and Unemployment

Description:
"Since its inception in 1935, the unemployment insurance (UI) program in the United States has operated as the primary safety net for those who involuntarily lose their jobs. Although the UI system's broad guidelines were established by federal law, UI essentially operates as a state-level program." This calculator "demonstrates the great disparities ... from one state to the next" and gives a general idea of the typical benefits. From the Economic Policy Institute.
