How Much Can I Receive In Benefits?

There are certain wage requirements based on the amount of money that you were paid while you were employed; the higher your earnings, the higher your weekly benefit amount up to the maximum allowed by law. The amount of money you earned during your base period (the first four of the last five totally completed calendar quarters prior to the date you file your new claim) determines your weekly benefit amount. The current weekly benefit amount provided by the Maryland Unemployment Insurance Law ranges from $25 to $280.

If you remain totally unemployed and otherwise remain eligible, you may receive 26 times your weekly benefit amount.
