Multiplying 2.5 by the calendar year 2008 monthly compensation base of $1,280 produces $3,200. Accordingly, the amount determined under section 4(a–2)(i)(A) is $3,200 for calendar year 2008. Maximum Daily Benefit Rate Section 2(a)(3) contains a formula for determining the maximum daily benefit rate for registration periods beginning after June 30, 1989, and after each June 30 thereafter. Legislation enacted on October 9, 1996, revised the formula for indexing maximum daily benefit rates. Under the prescribed formula, the maximum daily benefit rate increases by approximately two-thirds of the cumulative growth in average national wages since 1984. The maximum daily benefit rate for registration periods beginning after June 30, 2008, shall be equal to 5 percent of the monthly compensation base for the base year immediately preceding the beginning of the benefit year. Section 2(a)(3) further provides that if the amount so computed is not a multiple of $1, it shall be rounded down to the nearest multiple of $1. The calendar year 2007 monthly compensation base is $1,230. Multiplying $1,230 by 0.05 yields $61.50, which must then be rounded down to $61. Accordingly, the maximum daily benefit rate for days of unemployment and days of sickness beginning in registration periods after June 30, 2008, is determined to be $61. Dated: November 7, 2007. By Authority of the Board. Beatrice Ezerski, Secretary to the Board. [FR Doc.
