    The Base Period on which Unemployment Insurance benefits are figured is the prior year and a half (18 months). However, if you quit or get fired, you are disqualified from drawing any benefits. The only way you can qualify for U.I. benefits is if you are laid off or the business closes down. It has to be through no fault of your own that you lost your job.
