Question :
What is my weekly benefit amount?
Answer :
After you file your claim, you will be mailed a form called a monetary record. This form will show your weekly benefit amount, if your earnings were high enough to qualify during the Iowa base period, which is the first four of the last five completed calendar quarters. Your weekly benefit amount of unemployment insurance that you can draw will be based on the wages earned in your base period. Be sure to review the monetary record for any inaccuracies.
