There are separate programs for regular work and agricultural work. Minimum weekly benefits are $33.00 and maximum weekly benefits are $190.00 weekly for both programs, for a maximum of 26 weeks within the 52 week effective period of the claim. There is also a program that grants an additional 26 weeks of unemployment compensation to claimants who have worked in establishments where the Secretary of the Department of Labor determines that there is a special situation of unemployment, due to technological changes or the disappearance of an industry or occupation. Additionally, there are specific programs for those who lose jobs due to loss of import trade and those who lose jobs due to a major disaster. The claimant must have a good cause for voluntarily leaving a job.
