What Is An Alternate Base Period?

If you submit a new claim starting on or after October 4, 1992, and you do not meet the minimum earnings requirements in the regular Base Period, we will re­compute your claim using an Alternate Base Period. This period consists of the last four completed calendar quarters before the starting date of your claim. While you must still meet the same overall earnings requirements, the Alternate Base Period will allow some of your more recent wages to be counted towards establishing your claim.
