You can estimate the net payable amount of Unemployment Insurance benefits by taking into consideration different deductions. You benefits are reduced when you work and earn wages, or receive holiday, vacation or severance pay in a week, or receive a monthly pension payment. Deductions from benefits can be for federal and/or state tax withholding or child support payments.
Weekly Benefit Amount: Enter the weekly benefit rate amount. You can estimate your weekly benefit rate by using the Weekly Benefit Rate Calculator
Wages Earned: Enter the total amount of wages earned during the week. Wages should include any bonuses, tips, incentives, overtime, sick pay, commissions, or any other supplemental pay earned. Enter the total hours and minutes worked for wages earned.
Holiday, Vacation and Severance Pay: Enter the total amount of pay for holiday, vacation or severance pay. Enter the total hours and minutes for any payment received.
Monthly retirement benefits: Enter the amount of any monthly pension payments. The monthly amount will be allocated to a weekly amount using a UI standard formula. The weekly amount calculated will be displayed as a part of your estimated net payment summary.
Tax Withholding: You can elect to have Federal and/or State taxes withheld from your benefits. If elected, Federal taxes are calculated as 10% of the weekly benefit rate after reductions for any income received. State taxes are calculated as 5% of the weekly benefit rate after reductions. Selecting either, or both, tax withholding check boxes, will only be used by the estimate calculator.
Child Support: Enter the estimated amount of any child support payments required by court order.
Estimated Net Payment: The estimated net payment will be calculated based on your entries when the Calculate button is selected. This is an estimate only. Calculation of partial benefits due will be determined after a weekly certification is filed. Actual payments of benefits are dependent on approval of all eligibility issues.
