Calculator - Unemployment Insurance

En español

The Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefit calculator will provide you with an estimate of your weekly UI benefit amount, which can range from $40 to $450 per week. Once you file your claim, the EDD will verify your eligibility and wage information to determine your weekly benefit amount (WBA). For more information, refer to How Unemployment Insurance Benefits Are Computed (PDF) or the Unemployment Insurance Benefit Table (PDF).

Note: This calculator cannot estimate your weekly benefit amount for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance claims.
