The maximum weekly unemployment benefit in Iowa will increase on July 4, Iowa Workforce Development said Wednesday.
The increases, which happen when the average wage of Iowans protected by unemployment insurance rises, vary based on how many dependents someone has.
An Iowan with no dependents can now receive up to $531 per week, which is up from $493, and will receive at least $79, which is up from $73.
Someone with four or more dependents is in the highest unemployment benefit bracket, which ranges from $95 to $651.
That’s up from $89 to $605 in 2020-21.
The maximum weekly benefit for workers’ compensation also will rise from $1,864 to $2,005.
Those on permanent partial disability leave now can receive up to $1,845 a week, an increase from $1,715.
