Unemployment Insurance Benefits

Colony Unemployment benefits are calculated to replace a percentage of the recipient's previous earnings, up to a maximum weekly amount. The maximum benefit may be determined, in part, on whether the recipient has dependents. The duration individuals may collect benefits for in is usually up to 26 weeks, though in some circumstances, such as a prolonged or severe economic downturn, the benefits may be extended.
