Use this calculator to estimate your potential weekly amount and potential maximum amount of unemployment benefits. You must provide your gross wages (before deduction) and the number of base weeks* you worked within your base year**. (Please Note: This calculator provides only an estimate of benefits. This is not considered a monetary determination for your claim. All claims must be filed and processed before any determination is made. Each claim is reviewed on a case-by-case basis and your eligibility for benefits is subject to New Jersey Unemployment Compensation Law).
