Benefits: How much can claimants receive?

The claimant′ WBA is calculated at 4 percent of the average of the two highest quarterly wages in the base period, not to exceed $320. All weekly benefits are rounded down to an even dollar.

The MBA is computed at one-third of the wage credits in the base period or 20 times the WBA, whichever is less. Wage credits used in each quarter to calculate the MBA are limited to a maximum of $8,320 (26 x $320 = $8,320).
