Benefit amount sucks

I was unemployed in 2004 and the weekly benefit was $450.

I was unemployed in 2017 and the weekly benefit was $450.

Which means that the amount has actually DECREASED if you factor in inflation.

Why don’t they inflation adjust the benefit?!?!?!

    Yeah, I filed in 2005 and the maximum was $460 then. I was shocked to see it didn’t go up when I filed in 2017. Bullshit! I know they don’t want us collecting UI but FFS…we have bills to pay!
