    <How are benefits calculated?>

    Regardless of which state you live in, you'll receive a weekly unemployment benefit based on how long you were employed and your prior wages. The state will calculate your average weekly wage, and you will receive a percentage of that wage based on your state's formula. You can figure out your average weekly wage by adding up 12 months' worth of pay stubs and dividing that number by 52. If you were salaried, just divide your annual salary by 52.

    Length will vary depends on your situation. Usually it last up to 26 weeks..

    In your situation, it seems to be qualified, but I'd recommend you to go ahead and call your local unemployment office, and get a clear answer.
