Also some members have reported in both states issues calculating your income with Rhode Island unemployment. They will include this in your income calculations, however the way in which it is being calculated is not entirely correct they are calculating your unemployment rate at $566 x 52 weeks.
Here is the correct way to calculate it:
$566 a week X 26 weeks = $14,716 then divided by 52 weeks = $283
