DEED’s Unemployment Insurance (UI) program assists workers who can’t work, have their hours reduced or lose their jobs as a result of the pandemic. The UI program is prepared and ready to assist these workers.
If you are unemployed or have your hours reduced, please apply for unemployment benefits by going online to www.uimn.org. Please use the www.uimn.org website to submit your application, because this is the most efficient way to serve applicants. The website can accept applications Monday - Friday 6 a.m. through 8 p.m. We are working to add Sunday hours.
Given the volume of expected applications, we are asking for applicants’ patience as we ramp up to meet demand in this unprecedented situation.
