How much will I receive?

It depends on your state. In Ohio, unemployment benefits typically pay 50 percent of your average weekly wage during the base period. However, the maximum payment is $424 per week and the minimum payment per week is $118. Additionally, depending on if and how many dependents you have, your benefit payment may be higher.

Under the plan, eligible workers will get an extra $600 per week on top of their state benefit.
