    file unemployment. no shame to it at all. if you feel that way, you need a new perspective.

    It varies state to state, unless the feds inacted something "universal". I know the feds are helping by giving money to allow the states to extend their programs. It's at the very least 11-12 months now in PA.

    it's not for everyone obviously. it's based on what you made before you were unemployed.

    This is true to some extent, but even if you made 10 million a year in Michigan, the most you can receive is 362 (plus 25 for now) a week pre-tax.

    I would imagine some of the variation for the states comes from cost of living differences, although that's just a guess.
