Do all jobs worked in a quarter count when determining benefits?
I worked 3 jobs at one point (in California), 2 temp jobs and one full time job. I was laid off from the full time job recently and the two temps were over before I was laid off. What I want to know is when they are deterining my benefits and looking at how much I made in the highest quarter for the past 12 months, are all three of my jobs (cmbined income) counted towards my total benefit amount? Even though the job I was laid off from is only part of my total earnings? Because with the 2 temp jobs, my total earnings in a single quarter triples. Thanks!

all jobs that report wages quarterly to the state agencies they each report your wages, and if there is more than one, it must means your quarterly wages are greater

All those jobs are combined. However, they don't look at the past 12 months. They looked at the period of 4 quarters that began 15-18 months before you filed and ended 3-6 months before you filed. For example, if you file in October 2013, then they look at the 12 months from July 1, 2012, to June 30, 2013.
