This is my first time on UI and my first posting in this forum. I am not sure if this is a repeat question. My UI claim began 8/10/2014 and ends 08/08/2015. Maximum benefit amount is $10,712.00 with a weekly benefit of $412. Which prevails? The maximum benefit amount or the claim ending date? Thank you.

Yes, this gets asked one to two times per week. Once you draw your $10,712 or your claim expires whichever comes first, you're done. You might qualify for a new claim when it expires 8/8/15, but you have to work and earn the right amount of money since 8/10/14 or even that isn't possible.

Most state handbooks are very clear that the maximum benefits do not exceed "X" number of weeks' full benefits. Maximum number of weeks paid varies by state, some paying as few as 14-16 weeks' benefits.

In all states, your monetary award is a multiplication of your weekly WBA by the number of weeks paid.

Your state website and its handbook should clearly spell out how benefits are calculated and the maximum that is paid. Sounds like you are in California. California handbook states:
Quote:
Maximum Benefit Amount:

The amount shown is your maximum UI award for this claim. The maximum award is 26 times the weekly benefit amount or one-half of the total base period wages, whichever is less (see item 5, for an explanation of the term base period).

When you have received your maximum award, no further benefits are payable.
