The Minnesota Unemployment Insurance Program is administered by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, a state agency.

The purpose of unemployment benefits is to provide a temporary partial wage replacement to help those unemployed through no fault of their own to become reemployed. The law on unemployment insurance is set out in Minnesota Statutes, section 268.029 to section 268.23. The sections on benefits are 268.068 to 268.192, and 268.035.

Benefits are paid from the Minnesota Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund. The fund is supported solely by a special tax on employers. No deductions for unemployment insurance are taken from employees’ paychecks.
