Calculating Indiana Unemployment Benefit Amounts

Determine Your Weekly Benefit Amount

Unemployed? We want to help.

Your Weekly Benefit Amount (WBA) is determined by dividing your total base period wages (as calculated above) by 52 and then multiplying that number by 0.47. That amount is then rounded down to the whole number below it. The maximum WBA in Indiana is currently $390.

EXAMPLE: If you made $35,000 in your base period, you would divide that by 52 ($615.38 or your average weekly wage) and multiply that by 0.47 ($289) to calculate your WBA. Any base period total over $43,148 will receive $390, regardless of the above-mentioned calculation.

Determine Your Maximum Benefit Amount

Multiply your WBA by 26 to calculate your Maximum Benefit Amount (MBA). In the example above, that would be $289 x 26 = $7,514. The maximum amount payable would then be $10,140 ($390 x 26).
