The unemployment maximum weekly benefit amount is no longer indexed to the average weekly insured wage. Legislation (H4) passed in the 2013 Session of the North Carolina General Assembly states that the maximum weekly benefit amount is to be statutorily set. This means that passage of legislation is required to either increase or decrease this amount. The current maximum weekly benefit amount is $350.
