Information about the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund (UITF)

About the Massachusetts Unemployment Insurance Program

Unemployment Insurance (UI) is an economic stabilization program implemented under federal and state law that provides a safety net for workers who become separated from employment due to no fault of their own. The UI program provides temporary benefits to unemployed workers from the Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance’s (DUA) Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund (UI Trust Fund). Employer-paid state unemployment taxes and reimbursements fund the UI Trust Fund and pay for benefits. The United States Department of Labor (USDOL) allocates funds from the Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) to the state to pay for DUA administrative and operational costs.

Additional Information about the UITF Dashboard 

Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) is the primary source for historical actual data on wages and salaries and size of the labor force. Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS) is the primary source for official unemployment rates. 

Additional Information can be found on the MA Legislature Website.
