PA Unemployment FAQ:
- Am I eligible for Unemployment Compensation?
Firstly, you need to earn enough money during your “base year”(the first four quarters of the last five completed quarters at the time your claim is filed). Secondly, you are out of job but not because of your fault. Finally, you must be able and ready to return to work.
- How much will I receive in benefits?
You will be paid about half of what your full-time wage was before you became unemployed. The amount you’re paid is your weekly benefit rate. Your weekly benefit rate is calculated based on what you earned during your base year. Visit to have more information about PA Unemployment.
