Employer Self-Service System

The Minnesota Unemployment Insurance (UI) Program conducts nearly all of its business electronically. The program provides, at no charge, an electronic system for Minnesota employers to:

  • Submit quarterly wage detail reports
  • Make payments
  • View and respond to benefit activity that directly affects their account
  • Perform necessary maintenance to their accounts, such as:
    • address changes
    • changes in ownership
    • additions or deletions of reporting units

Because electronic government is more cost efficient than are paper-based transactions, there is no process in place for handling paper forms. This is part of an ongoing effort to make the UI Program more efficient for the benefit of both employers and applicants.

Electronic self-service gives employers and applicants greater access to and control of their own UI accounts. It also provides more information to employers about unemployment benefits applications submitted by former employees that affect their unemployment accounts and/or tax rates.


Features of the online system:
