To qualify for UI in WI, you must have worked during a minimum of two quarters in the base period. Your total base period earnings must be at least 35 times the weekly benefit amount (WBA). Your HQW must be at least $1,350, with an additional amount of at least 4 times the WBA in wages outside of the HQW.
The minimum WBA is $54, which is computed by taking 4% of the minimum HQW. This makes the minimum total base period earnings to be at least $1,890.
WI offers an alternate base period, which considers the last four completed calendar quarters of the base period (instead of the first four); however, an extended base period is not offered.
