The minimum you will receive in unemployment benefits in Florida is $32 per week and the maximum is $275; your benefits are calculated by taking the highest amount of money earned during any quarter in the base period and dividing it by 26. Florida is thought to be one of the lowest paying states in the nation because of what is plays unemployed people. Even if you are earning a whopping $30,000 a year your maximum unemployment compensation works out at about $6.88 an hour. The state's maximum benefit hasn’t been altered in 10 years and it's making the economic downturn more painful for the residents of Florida. Shockingly, Florida has laid off more people lately, mainly in construction and financial industries. Unemployment analysts say Florida’s unemployed are facing difficult times as people cut back on hiring to save money.  Unemployment benefits in Florida lasts a maximum of six months and is based on workers' employment history. The United States has complex methods of working out eligibility for benefits. The three main factors include the amount of recent employment and earnings, demonstration of willingness to find work and job offer refusal qualifications. Workers must have worked for roughly two quarters and earned $1,734 to qualify for minimum monthly benefits. Working out annual wages for the lowest weekly benefit amount varies from $150 in Hawaii to $3,400 in Florida. The exact laws surrounding unemployment benefits and appeals is still under emphasised by most state unemployment websites.
