When you apply for unemployment insurance benefits in Pennsylvania, you are not certain to obtain anything. The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry assesses your application for eligibility. Once you meet all the requirements and are determined eligible, they use their own formula to decide how much per week you will collect. The formula is intended to give you about half of the weekly payments you made during the highest earning quarter you had before your job separation.

Calculate Your Expected Benefit

We created this handy calculator to help you analyze what you might obtain if you are eligible. It will help you decide how much you will be able to collect in unemployment benefits every month. We make no promises or epresentations that the amount you receive will be equivalent to what the calculator illustrates.
