HB 5367 – Would have made several changes to unemployment benefits and eligibility requirements for receiving them. It:
- Increased from $15 to $50 the minimum amount of weekly unemployment benefits most claimants can receive,
- Increased from $600 to $2,000 the minimum amount most claimants must earn during their base period (the first four of the last five calendar quarters) to be eligible for benefits, and
- Required most claimants’ benefits to be based on their average quarterly wages during all four quarters of their base period, instead of during their two highest earning quarters.
