Unemployment insurance information
The Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) provides unemployment insurance (UI) benefits and transitional services to help Massachusetts citizens get back on the road to re-employment. Unemployment Insurance is a temporary income protection program for workers who have lost their jobs but are able to work, available for work and looking for work.
In January, DUA mails a 1099-G statement to all claimants showing total benefits paid and taxes withheld during the previous calendar year. You will need this form when you file your tax returns. Your 1099-G statements can be viewed online and printed for your records by logging into UI Online.
