Unemployment compensation is usually based on how much you were making when you were employed (up to some maximum benefit amount). The calculation is often fairly complicated, so your best bet is to contact the state unemployment office and check with them in your particular case what your weekly benefit would be.

States do not release weekly but monthly. New Yorks current rate is 4.9%. .1% lower than the national rate.

look on the state website for their booklet showing how the calculation is done

If you have been laid off from your job you may be able to file for unemployment online without visiting an unemployment office. In many states, unemployed workers can apply for unemployment benefits online or over the phone. In New York, for example, can visit Unemployment Services web site to file a new unemployment claim, claim weekly benefits, or check on the status of an existing unemployment compensation claim. Filing by phone is also an option.

How much? In general, unemployment benefits are based on an individual's earnings in the base period. As of December, 2008, NY benefits ranged from $40 to $405. New York state unemployment benefits are subject to Federal income taxes, and you may elect to have taxes withheld from your unemployment check. How soon? Across the United States, it generally takes two to three weeks to receive your first benefit check after you file your claim. Check with your state unemployment office for details. How long? As of December, 2008, The duration of NY unemployment benefits was 26 weeks, but benefits can be extended by New York during times of high unemployment or other special circumstances.

I was layed off one month after my 62nd birthday and I am collecting unemployment. I live in New York so it is legal here. Check with your state unemployment office as all states have different laws and regulations.

Lots of people say different things. I've heard some people say that to find the average weekly income anywhere in the U.S. is impossible. I found this site interesting, but it might not answer your question:http://www.city-data.com/forum/new-york-city/248139-what-average-weekly-salary-needed-make.html

Unemployment benefits extended in the 2009 economic stimulus planPreviously, unemployed workers were eligible for 26 weeks of unemployment benefits. As as result of this bill, unemployment benefits was extended by 20 weeks regardless of which state they live in. In some higher-unemployment states such as California, there will be another 13 weeks of unemployment benefits available as well.Total weeks of unemployment available:Low-unemployment state - eligible for 46 weeks of benefits.High-unemployment state - eligible for 59 weeks of benefits.Increased unemployment benefits by $25 per week.Although it varies from from state to state, the average unemployment benefit payout will be increased by $25 to about $325 per week. Your claim lasts for one year, but the full amount is 26 times the weekly benefit amount, currently at $405 max.

No, I don't think so. You quit a job and that is why I say you can't. Check with the unemployment office.

Generally, unemployment benefits are paid by the state in which you worked. If you live in Connecticut and work in New York you most likely collect unemployment benefits from the state of New York.

The state handbook provides that: "Your weekly benefit rate is one twenty-sixth (1/26) of the high quarter wages paid to you in your base period. Exception: If your high quarter wages are $3,575 or less, your weekly benefit rate is one twenty-fifth of your high quarter wages. Wages are applied to the quarter in which they are paid. The maximum rate is $405." You can finds links to the handbook and other New York unemployment resources at: http://click-for.info/unemployment/newyorkunemployment.html

Yes, if you meet eligibility requirements for both programs. New York repealed the Social Security offset regulations that reduced unemployment compensation for people who were claiming both benefits. Both Social Security and the State of New York allow workers to collect unemployment and Social Security at the same time without applying a penalty to either check.

Yes, go to the website for out of state applicants. You can collect from any state as long as the majority of your work or enough of the work that is being used to calculate your unemployment wages is in NYS. Check their website or call. They will be able to help get you lined up.

There is no unemployment office located in Queens, NY. The closest office would be the Unemployment Insurance Services in Brooklyn or the New York Department of Labor in New York, NY.
