How Is My Benefit Amount Determined?

Your weekly benefit rate will be 1.3078 percent of your total base period wages. A weekly benefit amount can neither be lower than $39.00 nor more than the maximum weekly benefit amount allowed in Kentucky at that time.

The maximum benefit amount (MBA), the total amount a claimant can draw in regular benefits on a single claim, must be the lesser of the following:

  • Twenty­six times the weekly benefit amount.
  • One­third of the total base period wages (except no MBA can be less than 15 times the weekly benefit amount).
