Average Weekly Benefits Amount

Metadata Updated: March 30, 2024

The Average Weekly Benefit Amount (AWBA) is the average dollar amount a claimant is qualified to receive in Unemployment benefits. These figures include only Regular UI, and exclude any Federal/Military claims and extensions. The AWBA is calculated using “Benefits Paid for Total Unemployment” divided by “Weeks Compensated for Total Unemployment”. As defined by the United States Department of Labor, total unemployment represents the number of individuals, 16 years of age or older, who do not have a job and are eligible for UI benefits. This amount includes individuals who are partially employed and receiving unemployment benefits.
