The unemployment benefit calculator will provide you with an estimate of your weekly benefit amount, which can range from $40 to $450 per week. Once you submit your application, we will verify your eligibility and wage information to determine your weekly benefit amount. For more information, refer to How Unemployment Insurance Benefits Are Computed (PDF) or the Unemployment Insurance Benefit Table (PDF).
If you did not work at any time in the last 18 months and did not earn any wages, your estimated weekly benefit amount will be $0 because you did not earn enough wages during your base period to qualify for unemployment benefits. For more information, visit Eligibility Requirements. You do not need to apply.

Review 2023 Veterans disability compensation rates. Use our compensation benefits rate tables to find your monthly payment amount. We base your monthly payment amount on your disability rating and details about your dependent family members.
If your spouse receives Aid and Attendance benefits, be sure to also look at the Added amounts table, and add it to your amount from the Basic monthly rates table.
If you have more than one child or your spouse receives Aid and Attendance benefits, be sure to also look at the Added amounts table, and add these to your amount from the Basic monthly rates table.
Go to the compensation rates for your disability rating. On the Basic monthly rates table, find the amount for your disability rating and dependent status. This is your basic monthly rate.
Because of the public health emergency, SNAP recipients have been receiving additional benefits each month since April 2020. The additional amount was based on the maximum allowable amount of SNAP benefits based on family size or at least $95. Due to federal guidelines, recipients will no longer receive additional benefits starting in March 2023.
To find out what your monthly benefit amount will be without the SNAP emergency allotment, log in to your account on YourTexasBenefits.com or the mobile app and go to Case Details, or call 2-1-1 and, select option 9 after selecting a language. You do not need to speak to an agent.
Summary Social Security benefits are typically computed using "average indexed monthly earnings." This average summarizes up to 35 years of a worker's indexed earnings. We apply a formula to this average to compute the primary insurance amount (PIA). The PIA is the basis for the benefits that are paid to an individual.
Up to 35 years of earnings are needed to compute average indexed monthly earnings. After we determine the number of years, we choose those years with the highest indexed earnings, sum such indexed earnings, and divide the total amount by the total number of months in those years. We then round the resulting average amount down to the next lower dollar amount. The result is the AIME.
An insured worker becomes eligible for retirement benefits when he or she reaches age 62. If 2023 were the year of eligibility, we would divide the national average wage index for 2021 (60,575.07) by the national average wage index for each year prior to 2021 in which the worker had earnings and multiply each such ratio by the worker's earnings. This would give the indexed earnings for each year prior to 2021. We would consider any earnings in or after 2021 at face value, without indexing. Then we would compute the AIME and use this amount in computing the worker's primary insurance amount for 2023.
Primary Insurance Amounts The PIA is the sum of three separate percentages of portions of the AIME. While the percentages of this PIA formula are fixed by law, the dollar amounts in the formula change annually with changes in the national average wage index. These dollar amounts, called "bend points," govern the portions of the AIME.
For example, a person who had maximum-taxable earnings in each year since age 22, and who retires at age 62 in 2023, would have an AIME equal to $12,427. Based on this AIME amount and the bend points $1,115 and $6,721, the PIA would equal $3,653.30. This person would receive a reduced benefit based on the $3,653.30 PIA. The first COLA this individual could receive is the one effective for December 2023. See the monthly benefit amount for this example and other examples with maximum-taxable earnings.
PIA definition The "primary insurance amount" (PIA) is the benefit (before rounding down to next lower whole dollar) a person would receive if he/she elects to begin receiving retirement benefits at his/her normal retirement age. At this age, the benefit is neither reduced for early retirement nor increased for delayed retirement.
PIA formula bend points The PIA is the sum of three separate percentages of portions of average indexed monthly earnings. The portions depend on the year in which a worker attains age 62, becomes disabled before age 62, or dies before attaining age 62. For 2023 these portions are the first $1,115, the amount between $1,115 and $6,721, and the amount over $6,721. These dollar amounts are the "bend points" of the 2023 PIA formula. A table shows bend points, for years beginning with 1979, for both the PIA and maximum family benefit formulas.
PIA formula For an individual who first becomes eligible for old-age insurance benefits or disability insurance benefits in 2023, or who dies in 2023 before becoming eligible for benefits, his/her PIA will be the sum of: (a) 90 percent of the first $1,115 of his/her average indexed monthly earnings, plus (b) 32 percent of his/her average indexed monthly earnings over $1,115 and through $6,721, plus (c) 15 percent of his/her average indexed monthly earnings over $6,721. We round this amount to the next lower multiple of $.10 if it is not already a multiple of $.10.
If you are eligible to receive Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits, you will receive a weekly benefit amount of approximately 50% of your average weekly wage, up to the maximum set by law. As of October 2, 2022, the maximum weekly benefit amount is $1015 per week.
The primary base period is the last 4 completed calendar quarters prior to the effective date of your claim (typically the Sunday of the week that you filed your claim). For most claimants, the primary base period is used to calculate your maximum benefit credit, which is the total amount of benefits you are eligible to receive.
If you disagree with the wages reported on your Monetary Determination Notice, you can provide proof of the wage amounts you are disputing by completing and returning the Wage and Employer Correction Sheet that was mailed to you with your notice. DUA will review the information and make any necessary adjustments.
Your maximum benefit credit (the total amount of benefits you are eligible to receive) is available to you for the duration of your benefit year or until you have exhausted your maximum benefit credit. Once your benefit year expires, any unpaid benefits will no longer be available to you.
If you are eligible to receive UI benefits, you will receive a weekly benefit amount of approximately 50% of your average weekly wage, up to the maximum set by law. As of October 2, 2022, the maximum weekly benefit amount is $1015 per week. Follow the steps below to calculate the amount of unemployment benefits you may be eligible to receive each week.
The number of weeks you are eligible to receive UI benefits is called your duration of benefits. Your duration of benefits is calculated by dividing your maximum benefit credit by your weekly benefit amount.
When your employer improperly treats you as an independent contractor, rather than an employee, they might not report your wage information to DUA as required. As a result, when you file a claim for unemployment benefits, your initial monetary determination may not reflect all of your wages or employment information. This may lead to a disqualification notice saying you do not have enough wages on file to qualify for unemployment benefits, or you may receive a lower weekly benefit amount.
With prior written approval from the Federal awarding agency, a pass-through entity may provide subawards based on fixed amounts up to the Simplified Acquisition Threshold, provided that the subawards meet the requirements for fixed amount awards in 200.201.
Your past wages are one of the eligibility requirements and the basis of your potential unemployment benefit amounts. We use the taxable wages, earned in Texas, your employer(s) have reported paying you during your base period to calculate your benefits. If you worked in more than one state, see If You Earned Wages in More than One State.
We will mail you a statement with your potential benefit amounts after you file your claim. You may use the TWC Benefits Estimator to estimate your potential benefit amounts. The estimator cannot tell you whether you qualify for unemployment benefits. 041b061a72
