The state uses the Flat Qualifying Amount (FQA) method. Within the base period, you have to earn at least $2,500 to qualify. You also must have worked during at least 2 quarters of the base period.
To determine your eligibility, follow this model:
Did you earn at least $2,500 within the entire base period?
■ your base period earnings > than $2,500
- Did you work in at least 2 quarters of the base period?
■ # of quarters you worker in BP > than 2
If you answered yes to both questions, you qualify for unemployment insurance in Alaska.
Alaska does not offer extended or alternate base periods.
