Calculate Remaining Weeks of Benefits
To Calculate Remaining Weeks of Benefits:
- Find the column labeled "Status".
- In the "Status" column, locate a row labeled "Open" that has a remaining balance.
- Divide the amount listed under "Remaining Balance" by the number in that same row under the "Weekly Benefits" column.
- The result is the number of weeks of benefits you have left.
Using the example above, the calculation should look like this:
Remaining Balance ($2,808.00) / Weekly Benefit ($108.00) = Weeks of Benefits Remaining (26)

Requirements to Receive Benefits
While receiving benefits, you must:

eligible for benefits. You may look for work in person, by mail, or online, and be able to verify your work
search information to DWD upon request. Mailing or submitting a resume for an open position qualifies as a
work search. Please see our Claimant Handbook, located at

NOTE: If you have a work search waiver (which includes DWD approved training, a return to work date

or post your resume and you do not have to report your work search efforts each week. However,
you must still submit a weekly voucher and provide any
