Welcome Employers and Agents!

This is the official website for Minnesota Unemployment Insurance (UI). 

Unemployment Insurance provides benefits to workers who become unemployed through no fault of their own. The benefits are funded through a tax paid by employers. 

Employers: If you have employees covered by the Minnesota UI law, you must register for an employer account

Agents: An "agent" is an entity that acts on behalf of an employer (the agent's client) to handle the employer's Unemployment Insurance obligations.
