What is a Monetary Determination?
A monetary determination is a written notice issued by the state establishing your UC eligibility and your UC benefit entitlement. This information is given to you when you initially apply for state UC benefits. It includes your benefits year beginning (BYB) date, weekly benefit amount (WBA), Maximum Benefit Amount (MBA) payable and the number of benefit weeks allowed. You will need to provide this information when applying for a layoff benefit.
