Unemployment Benefits Calculator


Use this calculator to see whether you may be eligible for unemployment benefits and to estimate the unemployment benefits that you may receive. This is only a screening tool, and it does not guarantee you any benefits. If you receive a different result from your filed claim, check the accuracy of the numbers you entered here, and then check the employer's numbers on which your claim was decided. You may then request a hearing within 10 days of the date of the agency's written decision and present your check stubs, W-2 forms, or other financial proof at or before the hearing. You may also call your local Legal Services office or the LSNJ Hotline for possible further assistance as noted below.

Note: You must have JavaScript enabled in your browser for this calculator to work.
