I'm working again, earning wages, or reduced hours

I worked for a small amount, how will EDD calculate my benefit amount?

  • To calculate your wages, see "what will I be paid if I report wages" here.

  • Keep scrolling for a breakdown of how the math works or get access to the Tools & Calculators here


1) If you made $101 or more

Formula: benefit amount - (gross wages x .75) = new benefit amount

They only subtract 75% of your gross wages


Ex. Benefit amount is 450, gross income for the week was 400

450 - (400 x .75)

450 - 300 = 150

New benefit amount for that particular week is 150



2) If you made $26 to $100

Formula: benefit amount - (wages - 25) = new benefit amount
