Unemployment Insurance: Eligibility Requirements–Past Earnings and Weekly Benefits

To be eligible for any unemployment insurance (UI) benefits, you will have to prove to the Employment Development Department (EDD), the agency that handles UI, that you meet the “past earnings requirement.” This requirement, which is based on the income you earned during the 18-month period before you apply for benefits, is described in detail in this Fact Sheet.

This Fact Sheet also discusses how EDD decides your “weekly benefit amount,” which is the size of your weekly unemployment check.
